"Jammy and soft, with smoky black cherry aromas that lead to plum, spice and toasted herb flavors. Drink now through 2019." 88 points, Wine Spectator
Winemaker's Notes: "The 2012 Zinfandel is aged for 12 months in a combination of French and American oak barrels, 20% of which were new. At this level of "new wood", the up-front endearing quality of Zinfandel can assert itself. Aromas of a briar patch on a hot summer day carry over to the palate and are carried in a mouth-filling, flavorful, juicy package. The wine was crafted for immediate enjoyment but for those who enjoy a more complex wine displaying some bottle-aged character, aging for another two to three years is a good option."
