Winery Notes:

This fresh, clean Zinfandel-based red blend has clear notes of bramble

and ripe berries intermingled with white pepper and potpourri. Smooth
and long in the mouth, this wine is a balance of bright acid, rich center, and
structured finish. Aromatically lifted by a small addition of Grenache, our
favorite combination of Zinfandel, Syrah and Petite Sirah shows increased
integration and suppleness from a finishing touch of Carignane. Flavors of
heady plum and tart strawberry are supported by cocoa and spice yielding
a delicious wine with just the right mix of exuberance and restraint that
begs to be opened and enjoyed.

The NV OVR Lot 73 is composed mainly of Zinfandel with smaller portions of Syrah, Petite Sirah, Carignan and Barbera. Medium ruby, it offers intense red cherry, blood orange and apricot perfume with accents of rooibos tea leaves, red licorice, saline, lilac and loads of spicy nuances. The medium-bodied palate is light on its feet with soft tannins, bursts of refreshing acidity and detailed amaro accents on the long finish. This is so easy to drink!

Lovely aromas of pitted red cherries, black cherries, moss and walnut. Medium-to full-bodied with gentle tannins. Nice intensity with lovely length. Juicy, with so much herbal complexity and black fruit. Predominantly zinfandel, with syrah, petite sirah, grenache, barbera, carignan.

Tastes like the gutsy field blends popularized by Italian immigrants back in the day, with potent wild berry, licorice and smoky cracked pepper flavors that finish with broad-shouldered tannins. Zinfandel. Drink now through 2029. 16,000 cases made.
