A juicy nose of wild blackberry, baking spice, and ancho chili — everything you want Zinfandel to smell like, but it rarely does. The splash of Vermentino gives white peach and citrus zest. A generous body balanced by moderate acidity and characteristically dusty tannins (Venturi Vineyard’s signature).
Enjoy with any evening that calls for your mom’s secret BBQ sauce recipe, curry, grilled pita and endless dips.
Drink when looking through old photos, Zoom tastings with whoever you call family, or on a romp through the woods connecting with your inner child. This wine is an expression of wise elders who are children at heart. For whoever keeps you young.
