Review

Opaque purple. A hypnotic bouquet evokes black and blue fruit preserves, incense, licorice and violet, with smoky Indian spice and mineral nuances and a hint of cola. Completely stains the palate with intense blackberry, cherry and plum flavors, with peppery spice and floral pastille notes taking flight on the back end. Lush, seamless, deep zinfandel with superb finishing energy and floral persistence. These head-pruned vines, which sit on a 60-degree slope(!), were planted in 1887.
