Exuberate and fruit forward, this unique Zinfandel offers tiers of flavor on the nose and palate. Cola, Tobacco and Dry Sandalwood aromas begin the experience, followed by Black Cherry, Raspberry and Hazelnuts which tantalize the taste buds and add to the complexity. Well-balanced soft tannins and acidity on the finish add to the appeal of this lovely Zinfandel.
