This is a blend of some of Quivira's best Zinfandel lots. Fermented with native yeasts and aged 17 months in French Oak (30% new). It's a full ruby-garnet in the glass, fully extracted and full bodied. Red raspberry, cherry, lavender, and mulled cider aromas fill the nose. The palate starts with full flavors from the nose of cherry and raspberry, along with baked apple and hot cinnamon candy across the mid-palate. It finishes with a flourish of nutmeg and coffee- smooth tannins and medium length along with a nice kick of heat. This is full and big, but not overwhelming or jammy. Everything is in balance and the wine is very inviting despite the high alcohol (15.5%). Excellent pairing with grilled jerk pork loin, or I could see it going nicely with those big turkey legs they sell at the renaissance festival... I really like this wine, and would gladly pay the $34 retail again...

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
