2013 Zinfandel, "Carpoforo"
On the nose there are abundant notes of spiced fruit intertwined with those of sweet vanilla. The stoutly structured mid-palate holds its ground against lush flavors of dark chocolate and bright cherries. The addition of 10% Grenache lends some proper manners to the Zinfandel by adding bright fruit character. The 5% Petite Sirah lengths the finish with a supple and velvety tannin.
