Winemaker Notes:

Medium-dark to dark garnet-ruby. Intense aromas of cherry, cactus pear (tuna or higo chumbo in Spanish, I ate a lot of them as a child), pomegranate, and a subtle note of baking spice. Full-bodied but so well-balanced. Flavors of red and black fruits linger in the long and powerful finish. Compared to the ’16, slightly darker in profile yet this offers more immediate enjoyment. Drink this lip-smackin’ Zinfandel from release through 2026.

Wine SpectatorDynamic and well-structured, with an intense core of boysenberry, dried sage and smoky sweet anise flavors, taking on power toward polished tannins. Drink now through 2026. 470 cases made.
