Deeply hued with thick moderately pigmented legs. A classic big Zinfandel nose of wild berries (strawberry, raspberry, and blackberry), raw sugar, maple syrup, some briar, cherries jubilee, and a touch of vanilla with gamy overtones. Excellent acidity with a lengthy finish. Big Zins can often be tiring but this wine remains fairly light on its feet due to its acidity. A bit of a burn comes through on the back of the fruit as the wine ends.
