WineO Mark Review

This wine has well-balanced flavors with good acidity. Its aroma is filled with fresh cherries, oak, vanilla, and spices.

On the palate, this wine is fruit-forward that brings out tastes of blackberries, plums, raspberries, and cherries. It then gives way to notes of vanilla, tobacco, spices, and a hint cedar on the finish.

Just a fantastic California Zinfandel produced by a historic winery!
