"Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2016 Zinfandel Blend Eight Years (a blend of Zinfandel, Petite Sirah and Syrah) comes bounding out of the glass with notes of raspberry pie, blackberry preserves and fruitcake with touches of hoisin and Chinese five spice plus and waft of underbrush. Full-bodied, rich and spicy in the mouth, it packs in the black fruit preserves, framed by chewy tannins and finishing on a savory note. 2,600 cases were made."

"A bruiser of a blend, combining gutsy blackberry and licorice flavors, with accents of sandalwood, smoky anise and cracked pepper. Zinfandel, Petite Sirah and Syrah. Drink now through 2023. 2,600 cases made."
