Best in Zinfandel / Double Gold Medal Winner at the 2012 San Francisco International Wine Competition, this is a bold, inspiring and lavish red wine rich in peppery accents and subtle blackberry finish. Hints of black currant and nutmeg in the nose add a delightful complexity to this earthy, full-bodied, purplish-red Zinfandel that will pair beautifully with a broad assortment of foods including pastas, steaks, prime rib, salmon and anything barbecued.
In loving memory of Emilio De Paola (1934 - 2007)
Explosive in blackberry jam, currant and spice flavors. Typical brisk tannins, with a light acidity that cuts across the richness and gives the wine zest. A bold wine that stands on its own.
