Garnet in color with aromas of cherry and raspberry fruits, wintergreen, savory herbs, barrel spice. Cherry fruit on entry along with lively acidity, medium bodied, and a smooth tannin texture, with a gravelly-clay mineral finish.
Blend: 79% Zinfandel, 12% Carignane, 8% Petite Sirah, 1% Alicante Bouchet
The Wine Advocate - "The 2012 Proprietary Red Three Valleys is composed of 82% Zinfandel, 12% Petite Sirah and the rest Carignan and Alicante Bouchet. This sexy wine (14.2% natural alcohol) reveals lots of raspberry and black cherry fruit, medium to full body, beautiful purity, delicate notes of spice, and no hint of oak. Enjoy this fleshy red over the next 3-4 years"
Wine Enthusiast - "What a treat to find a truly dry, balanced table wine among a sea of sweet and overoaked Zins. Plenty of blackberry, clove, sage and cherry flavors are supported by just firm-enough tannins and medium body. The blend is 79% Zinfandel, 12% Carignane, 8% Petite Sirah and 1% Alicante Bouschet. "
