Savage Zinfandel 2016

This 100% Zin blend from our Estate Russian River Valley Zin block has unabashedly bold aromas and flavors.

Tasting Notes

Dark red hue gleaning form the rim of the glass. The aromas of deep, ripe black raspberry, fresh cut clove, toasted almond and faint fine black pepper fill the nose. Rich yet spicy red cherry, sweet floral raisin and more voluptuous red fruit pour heavily onto the palate. This is Pitts Home Ranch Zin with the volume turned WAY UP. Although this wine won't cellar the long haul (as most of my Zins), pop the cork and watch this extreme expression of Zinfandel impress.

This wine needs to be decanted in order to blow off the 16.4% alcohol for an hour or so.
