About

"Aromas of white pepper and lavender lead to a robust, meaty palate. Blackberry, graphite and oak round out the balanced, powerful foundation that's supported by firm tannins. -VB"

91 Lisa Perrotti-Brown - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"The 2016 Zinfandel Blocks 7 & 22 was aged for 15 months in French oak, 33% new. Pale to medium garnet-purple colored, it dances out of the glass with spicy notions of cloves, fenugreek, star anise and cumin seed with a core of raspberry preserves, stewed plums and blueberry compote plus wafts of tobacco, fallen leaves and fragrant soil. The palate is full-bodied with loads of juicy red and black fruit preserves flavors and a chewy texture, finishing with loads of freshness and a spicy kick. 1,059 cases were made."

Product Description:

"Color: Ruby. Initial aromas of tangy cherry and berry, spice and black tea. Elements of fruit, tannin and acid in balance on the lively palate. Bittersweet cocoa, baking cherries, blackberry jam, straw and spice among the flavors and aromas as the wine opens. Pairing thoughts: seared red meat; a tender, grilled lamb chop; dry-rubbed barbecue of any kind (without too much sweet or heat); dark meat chicken cooked in red wine with mushrooms and herbs; pasta with a savory, meaty, reduced sauce. Balanced, firmly structured and versatile." -Winery
