2011 ZINFANDEL BARREL SELECT: Deep garnet color with complex dark fruits of black cherry & plum, along with intriguing blackberry brambles hint at the deep fruit notes typical of Zinfandel. Clean leather, cut cedar, and anise spice with a smooth, lingering finish. Aged completely in French oak barrels, the first 24 months in medium toast, and finished in neutral oak for 48 months. Well-aged for the true wine aficionados. Patience brings us these complex flavors to savor with local Chèvre & various fruits.
