A spicy, peppery wine with cherry and both red and blue fruit character. With 14% Petite Sirah included in the blend, it is a tank-fermented, naked, unmanipulated expression of Zinfandel fruit from California’s Central Coast offering plenty of crunchy berry fruit.

Price: $16.99/bottle or $203.88/case

Sale: $15.29/bottle or $183.48/case
