The Immortal Zinfandel 2021
The color of this wine is truly immortal. Its rich, dark color goes on and on and on! The aromas of big, blackberry jam, ripe strawberries, along with a dark berry medley and orange blossom honey marry together to put your olfactory senses into a new dimension. The palate is wrapped in a mysterious, velvety layered mix of sweet blackberries, strawberries and blueberry compote followed by a healthy dose of chocolate on the finish. The rich, mouth filling characters that immediately jumps out at you is that of mom’s homemade baked blackberry pie! The wine has moderate oaky tannins and juicy acidity. This amazing old vine zinfandel will pair will all foods, from the gourmet burger on the grill, to a nut crusted seared ahi.
Enjoy now or cellar through 2030.

|A bit shy on the nose, this Zin really comes to life on the palate, incorporating rich ripe fruits with complementary soft, plush tannins and an excellent line of acidity that provides a refreshing backbone. Enjoy notes of blackberry, blueberry, boysenberry, violets and roses, fennel fronds and dried forest floor.|
