Savory herbs & spices like white pepper play first fiddle here, with the brambly red fruits not too far behind. Bright, pure, with excellent grip and texture from the granitic soils, the wine finishes with mouthwatering acidity and a feeling of freshness. May benefit from a light decanting.

Medium to deep ruby, the 2018 Zinfandel Old Vines Paso Robles offers gregarious peaches, apricots, dried flowers and orange peel with loads of underlying spices. Medium-bodied, the palate is elegantly styled, silky and juicy but packed full of spiced fruit flavors, and it finishes long and uplifted.
