Opaque purple/black color. Syrupy aromas of blackberries and black currants are accented by notes of black pepper and cedar. In the mouth, velvety blackberry liqueur leads to a youthful chewiness. The juicy finish begs for the next sip. Here is an archetypal example of Zinfandel designed to pair with all sorts of summer barbecue fare, the spicier the better!
