93 points Wine Spectator, Smart Buy: "This opens with a fruit bomb of wild berry briar patch, then transitions into an appealingly rustic and structured zest fest, revealing heaps of licorice, roasted sage and forest floor accents that build toward medium-grained tannins. Drink now through 2030. 1,192 cases made."
The now mature "Bambino" vines were planted in 2000 and represent our "young vine" Zinfandel. The 2019 blend is at least 75% Zinfandel that is co-fermented with Petite Sirah and Alicante Bouchet.
