The fruit was grown in Amador on rolling foothill terrain, and the wine spent ten months in French oak barriques. The fragrance is plummy and fresh, with a pine woods top note and a rustic earthy core. It suggests black and red bramble fruits and tart blueberries, with a finishing flare of cranberry and tea. A classic Zinfandel commingling of blue and red fruits in a light-bodied, friendly, well-priced wine.
