Aroma

Taste

This 50/50 blend of Syrah and Zinfandel is mature with bright cherry jam aromas and big fruit flavors enhanced by hints of spice and lively acidity. The juicy entrance leads to nice mid-weight density and mouth-filling texture. The finish is long, balanced, and filled with mouth coating.
