A bounty of apple blossom on the nose with scrub brush and manzanita, chewing tobacco with some spicy notes, deep red in color the wine suggests power and finesse, reminiscent of turley offering from this site. Big red fruit drive this mountain zin has layers of raspberry, blackberry, licorice, finishing with blueberry sage compte.
