From 25-year-old vines on Woolsey Road in Russian River Valley, owner Mark Lingenfelder has some of the prettiest Zin fruit that we turn into a very elegant wine! Try this with BBQ or Tomato-sauced pasta, since its bright acidity will complement them well.
Wine Maker’s Tasting Notes:
Very elegant and pretty nose, full of ripe red currants and nicely layered oak. Dusty vanilla-cocoa and slightly clovey spice, touch of black pepper.
In mouth it shows creamy vanilla oak and delicate fruit, restrained well. Nice weight to go with food, good structure for aging,
