Sipping Fine Wine Delectable Pro

History begins in 1885, when Osea Perrone, a doctor in San Francisco's Italian community, bought 180 acres near the top of Monte Bello Ridge in the Santa Cruz Mountains. Aromas of zesty fresh fruit and berries. Blend of 83% Zinfandel, 10% Alicante Bouschet, 7% Petite Sirah. A big wine! Aromas of jammy red fruits and loads of complex spice. The palate shows sweet plum and cherry flavors with pepper, smoke and herbs. Fine tannins on the rustic side, well balanced lingering ending with earthy oak.

Menthol and supple red and blue fruits. Highly aromatic and rich/silky palate.

Tar, violets, and red fruit lead the charge in this great wine. It seems odd to call a 15% alcohol Cali Zin balanced but this wine delivered. Tannins are firm but integrated.

Plush texture, loaded with ripe fruit, offset by some spice and eucalyptus flavors. Needs a big ol’ piece of meat

Elegant and complex wine. Long end in mouth with mid tannins, low acidity and notable presence of black cherries and berries.
