This robust wine is an excellent example of what makes a Dry Creek Valley Zin so drinkable. Cinnamon stick, nutmeg and clove aromas intermingle with rose petal and a hint of black pepper. Warm fruit compote and bright cherry flavors are finished with assertive tannins and well balanced acidity.

This "well-made" Cabernet Sauvignon (according to Robert Parker) opens with aromas of ripe blackberry, sweet tobacco, anise and cocoa. A soft, yet rich entry is sprinkled with notes of blackberry, tea and cedar ending with a pleasantly lingering finish.
Ripe, dense fruit aromas of white pepper, rose petal and allspice lead to an exciting palate with notes of blackberry jam and brown sugar.

Aromas of black fruit, dried tobacco, bay leaf, cumin, white pepper and currants lead to a concentrated palate of dense, resolved tannins with a hint of vanilla and spice.
