2015 Zinfandel, Cassata Vineyards
These grapes are grown in deep rocky soils. The aromatic approach brings you right into the vineyard and creates a sense of place. This wine has aromas of candied orange, fennel, blackberry, currant jam and cacao. There is a bouquet of black pepper and licorice, molasses and bramble berry. On the palate, flavors of raspberry jam, dried black currant and red plum are accentuated with notes of roasted bell pepper and fresh cigar tobacco. Drink now or over the next 10 years.
