2014 V Madrone Zinfandel
The wine is shiny with dark plum, blackberries and scarlet on the rim. On the nose, there is an explosion of cedar, cinnamon, macerated dark cherries, black truffle with roast beef, apple pie, sour cherry, dill and roses. On the palate there is a soft entrance, evolving on a fresh mid-palate with fine tannins and touches of cherry, red currant, graphite, plums and kumquats.
