“Brilliant ruby-garnet in color, this classic Old Vine Russian River Zinfandel features distinct aromas of red berries, cranberries, cherries, Asian spice, and cedar. Balanced with generous ripe raspberry, cherry, cocoa and vanilla cream with nuanced hints of cedar and oak that push through the spicy, lingering finish. Supremely enjoyable now, it will continue to evolve for the next 5 years.” - California Wine Advisors
