Deep ruby red hue and sparkling clarity belie the unfiltered nature of this wine. Characteristically brambly with slightly wild notes of forest floor and cedar boughs complement the purity of fruit. The round, soft entry provides a perception of sweetness and is reminiscent of old vine Zinfandel from the Sierra Foothills. While big, it is balanced with very fine, soft tannins and a warm lingering finish.
Try with spiced roasted nuts and blue cheese after dinner throughout the holidays.
