2014 The Defector
GOLD MEDAL - 2017 Craft Competition International Awards
This Estate grown Zinfandel was aged in 50% new French and 50% neutral American oak.
“Bright garnet black color. Baked aromas of raisin, cinnamon spice, Seville orange, cherry liqueur and licorice with a chewy, crisp, dryish medium-to-full body. Peppery with a compelling, medium-long sweet black tea, black raspberry sauce, balsamic vinegar, and honey and green peppercorn finish. Well-integrated, chewy tannins and a suggestion of oak. A mature and full zinfandel that will pair nicely with rich foods.” - Tastings.com
