Our Sivas-Sonoma 2011 Old Vine Zinfandel is densely packed and vibrant with a captivating peppery lift to the intense dark fruit flavors. It has a lush, sweet bouquet of brambly blackberry and fig compote, coupled with earthy notes of warm cinnamon and white pepper. Richly tannic and soft with deep, sweet flavors of currants, nutmeg and black tea. The American oak is finely integrated with its ripe fruit character, providing both structure and an elegant balance to this big Zinfandel. Try pairing this wine with barbecue tri-tip, a charcuterie plate or fresh carne asada tacos.

Wine AdvocateThe dark ruby/purple-colored 2011 Zinfandel Old Vine (14.5% alcohol) exhibits notions of oak and spice in the background and round, easy-going, fruit-laden flavors in the mouth. There is not a lot of pepper in this Zin, but it is fruity, easy-to-drink, and consumer-friendly. Enjoy it over the next several years.
