Napa Valley, California
A fragrant, intensely-flavored, gracefully-balanced wine that will drink well young, yet age for a decade. Burgundy enthusiasts will admire the intense, briary black-raspberry-scented nose, as well as the sweet (from ripe grapes, not sugar), expansive, fleshy palate. This wine combines earthy terroir characteristics with its rich, berry fruitiness. It is a concentrated, medium to full-bodied, seductive, velvety-textured Zinfandel. Impressive!
