This stellar rendition of Edizione Pennino Zinfandel opens dramatically with enticing scents of crushed strawberries, blueberries, and cherries. Floral notes of dried rose petals emerge thereafter with the sensual fragrance of cloves and incense. The exuberant quality of the nose carries onto the palate where fresh, lively flavors of raspberries, spiced plums and seasoned wood increase in volume and flood the palate. Finely integrated tannins harness the fruit’s lushness to create a round, full body yet the richness of this wine is perfectly balanced by natural acidity. Having aged in French and American oak barrels, the 2014 Pennino Zinfandel presents intriguing earthy spice notes all the way through the long, generous finish.
