Often, I describe this parcel as Zinfandel that wanted to be Pinot Noir. While it still demonstrates its signature stone fruit perfume, there is a haunting rich Pinot Noir-like character to the mid palate and finish. Some recent vintages have demonstrated more of a dark bramble berry nuance. But this vintage is more about the Zinfandel that dresses up like Pinot Noir and looks pretty good doing so.

The nose is lean and delicate floral and spice, savory violet and graphite. The palate is full, textured black cherry and plum with whiffs of violet and lavender – beautiful delicacy. Fred calls it Zinfandel trying to be a Pinot Noir. Drink 2020 – 2028. 94 Points. Doug Wilder
