2016 Markus Wine Co. blue Red Blend
This is spicy classic old vine Lodi Zinfandel, from Borra Vineyards’ Gill Creek Ranch, planted in 1968, and Spenker Ranch, located near Jessie’s Grove Winery. Brawny, velvety smooth tannins surround black current with dried plum, cedar and an earthiness, finishing dry with spicy pepper and anise. For a pairing, red lentils with sautéed mushrooms come to mind, as well as comforting chestnuts roasted on an open fire.
Borra Vineyards Gill Creek Ranch: 80% Zinfandel. Spenker Ranch: 10% Zinfandel, 5% Petite Verdot. Borra Vineyards Church Block: 5% Petite Sirah.
