The 2021 Heritage Vines Zinfandel is flavorful and wonderfully integrated. This vintage presents alluring aromatics of black cherry, boysenberry and plum with nuances of warm spices, mocha and white pepper. On the palate, brambly flavors of dark berries come forward. The wine is complex, with bright acidity complimented by deeper notes of cedar, fine leather and dark brown sugar. From start to finish, this remarkable wine offers refreshing acidity paired with excellent structure.

A briar patch in a bottle, this hearty red abounds with bold raspberry, roasted anise and smoky black pepper flavors that build tension and structure toward broad-shouldered tannins. Drink now through 2031. 19,892 cases made.

Rich vanilla bean and cocoa aromas lead to opulent blackberry and black cherry flavors in this lavishly oaked, well-polished and moderately tannic wine. It will benefit from a few years' age to let the spicy oak notes mellow a bit. Best from 2025.

Composed of 80% Zinfandel, 19% Petite Sirah, and the rest Carignan and pouring a dark red hue, the 2021 Zinfandel Heritage Vines is ripe with lush berries, mocha, and spice. Black-fruited, with ripe fig and a note of tea leaf, as well as sweet tannins and a supple texture, this opulent red has a youthful charm and would be outstanding alongside BBQ.
