Winemaker's Notes: "Attractive medium ruby in color, our 2012 Napa Zin offers warm, inviting notes of baking spices—clove, cinnamon, allspice—with black cherry, and hints of vanilla. A soft entry of berry and black pepper firms up with appropriate acidity and tannin to deliver an elegant, restrained version of Zinfandel—our hallmark. Seamless and pure are words in my wine description vocabulary that I don’t use on a regular basis. With this wine I do. As you have heard me say many times, 'delicious' is a goal I strive for. I am confident this hits the target."
