Alcohol by volume: 15.0%
Price at time of purchase: $40.00 (winery)
Type: Zinfandel
Principal varietal(s): Syrah

Almost opaque inky purple Syrah that's just starting to bloom. A big, meaty red that has, along with the usual black fruits, wonderful nuances of roasted meat, dried herbs, and olive. Muscular and powerful texture indicates this one is just a baby, though it is already delicious. Not a wine for the faint of heart. - HK 2020-12-31
