Blood red and just barely translucent this wine is a classic Livermore Valley Zinfandel. It's all about berries: blackberry, raspberry, olallieberry, even a little blueberry. A comforting sweet scent of vanilla fudge envelops your senses as the faint note of the damp forest floor gives the wine a cozy note. Cracked black pepper makes it pop. You can drink this wine anytime. Its berry flavors have a nice touch of sweetness. It is a delicious sipper, before or after dinner. The balanced alcohol, acids, and tannins confirm it is a food-friendly wine. The finish is warm and touched with toasted oak.
