OK! OK! For everyone that wants LARGESS from Zinfandel! Without any apologies, here is your LIP SMACKING, TEETH STAINING, PEDAL-TO-THE-METAL, THRILL RIDE ZINFANDEL! 18 months in 25% new French oak.
If you are an Oakland Raider fan, even better as the Magah family is one of the original franchise owners, only selling its interest in 2005.
100% Zinfandel – Dark and opulent ruby hues greet the eye as a classic Zin nose flush with red fruit, licorice root, bramble berry take center stage. Glass coating glycerin, a natural acidity lift, and a medium plus weight frame this garnet beauty throughout. The mid palate is loaded with mixed dark fruits, spice cake and root beer. An undeniable streak of anise right down the middle glides into to a 20 second plus finish. Full bodied and structured, a 1 hour decant works magic with this wine or lay it down for a few years to uncover hidden layers and complexities.Drink early or age for 4-6 years. – Mike Smith, Winemaker
