2017 The Falcon Zinfandel - Saint Helena, California
Sourced from old vines on the western edge of Saint Helena, this unique blend of 92% Zinfandel, 5% Merlot and 3% Cabernet Franc is the delicious brainchild of winemakers Jean Hoefliger and Camille Benitah. Deep saturated purple in color, the nose boasts aromas of wild briary fruit laced with hints of cinnamon, clove, and pipe tobacco. The palate is rich with boysenberry and blackberry flavors dusted with hints of white pepper and earth. And the finish shows uncommon elegance and refinement thanks to the precise winemaking and great raw material from the old vines. A beauty today that will be your go to red wine to accompany all your Summer barbecues.
