2012 California Zinfandel
Aromas of fresh cherries and plum jam greet you in the glass, followed by hints of dried oregano. This Zinfandel is ultra-soft on the palate and balanced with mouth-watering acidity. Packed with distinct flavors of strawberry preserves, raspberry, and even a touch of pluot, this wine is a lovely example of California’s native varietal.
