Our 2016 Bear Flag Zinfandel is structured and full-bodied with a subtle hint of spice. On the palate, dense, dark fruit characteristics are reminiscent of blueberry pie. Notes of toasted oak and vanilla seamlessly meld with a plush, lingering mouthfeel.

Flavors of crayon wax, vanilla bean and dark cherry appear on the palate along a continuum of tight, firm tannins. This is a thick, powerful wine that is given extra lift by a fresh citrus tug on the midpalate, providing a breath of refreshment.

Blended of 89% Zinfandel, 7% Petite Sirah and 4% Teroldego and aged in French and American oak, the medium to deep garnet-purple colored 2016 Zinfandel bursts from the glass with baked raspberries, redcurrant jelly and Black Forest cake notes with hints of tree bark, cracked pepper and Indian spices plus a waft of potpourri. Full-bodied, rich, velvety and wonderfully spicy in the mouth, it gives up loads of earthy layers on the long finish. 20,000 cases produced

Tightly wound and rustic, with low-key cherry and underbrush accents. Best after 2019. 20,000 cases made.
