Winemaker Steven Canter Notes
A very floral nose of red fruits and spice leads to a soft and gentle mouth feel supported by fresh acidity and a surprisingly long finish. Zinfandel sometimes gets pigeonholed as a BBQ and burger wine, and while the 2012 vintage will fill that role quite well, it has a refinement and sophistication that will shine with your more ambitious creations as well. Think mushroom risotto or chipotle-lime rubbed pork loin; even cedar planked salmon would be a fine match for this svelte beauty. 2012
