TASTING NOTES: Offering plenty of Zinny character, it’s dry and brisk in mouth-cleansing acidity, with soft tannins and rich flavors of dusty baking spices, blackberry purée, cherry compote, cola, shaved dark chocolate, red licorice and a savory coating of toasted cedar wood.
FOOD PAIRING: A great accompaniment to barbecue, game, roasted chicken, stews and lasagna.
