Inky black in color, this Zinfandel packs bright red raspberry, black pepper, clove and rose petal into an explosive aromatic profile. Unctuous flavors of Kirsch, cinnamon, charcuterie, and herbs are layered into an impressive and dense palate. The finish is powerful with supple tannins and refreshing acidity.
