Rotation Red Blend 2016
This majority Zinfandel blend is balanced by beautifully ripe Merlot and is rounded by Petit Syrah and Syrah, which reinforce the tannic backbone. Zinfandel is a favorite of the family; with the largest and oldest plots on the property dedicated to this superbly adept varietal. Not surprisingly, then, Zinfandel is the dominant varietal for our Red Blend. Find dark bramble fruit on the nose, with secondary aromas of black pepper and baking spice. The palate confirms the nose, matching bold bramble fruit up front, with a mix of black figs and black cherries for succulence. The fruit-forward front and mid-palate give way to a spicier more savory finish.
