Lodi, California - 80% Zinfandel , 10% Syrah, 5% Petite Sirah, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon
Aromas or ripe red & black raspberry, strawberry jam, red cherry, and blueberry with baking spices like anise, licorice, and vanilla. Spicy white pepper and dark fruit excite the senses followed by a velvety tannin feel and long finish.
What an awesome blend for smokey and roasted dishes! Juicy smoked or roasted Prime Rib and earthy root vegetables, pork tenderloin, smokey bacon dishes, gamey lamb chops, peppery dishes, and of course a charcuterie board with salamis and hard cheeses like pecorino or a pungent cheese like stilton.
