This wine pays homage to a historic revolt in Sonoma in 1846. Waves of dark cherry and vanilla surround a strong core of integrated oak and supple texture in this well-made wine. Ripe, full-bodied and well-balanced, this wine will please many a palate with ease.
Medium garnet-purple colored, the 2015 Zinfandel offers notes of baked raspberries, blueberry compote and plum preserves with touches of spice cake, dried mulberries and tilled black soil. Full-bodied, rich and with a soft, plush texture, the palate is packed with dried berries and spice layers, finishing with a pleasant earthiness. 11,570 cases produced.
