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.

Rich and BBQ wine to another level. Trademark dryness and rustic palate still fully intact, with firmness and terrific density.

Favorite Zin blend of the night. Jammy fruits but did not suffer from effects of high alcohol

Ripe for ridge. Plummy. Very balanced and enjoyable. fruity on opening but just a touch of air opens it up.

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

Notes of black fruit, spice and toasted oak, full, textural mouthfeel. Pairs wonderfully with steak and duck.
