Winemaker Ray Coursen Notes
The 2007 Korte Ranch Zinfandel is dark ruby red in color with aromas of spicy berries, cracked black pepper, and sweet earth. On the palate, the wine is full bodied and lavishly textured as it reveals brilliant flavors of briar patch, wild plums, and blackberry sorbet. This is a rich Zinfandel that flirts with jamminess while remaining amazingly balanced on its way to a graceful and long finish.

Pair with stews, ribs, and wild game.

This wine is drinking wonderfully now and, if you can manage to hold some back, will age nicely for another 5 – 10 years.
