Big Smooth Zinfandel opens with bursting aromas of luscious black cherry, blackberry, fig, and framboise. Toasted coconut, Tahitian vanilla, and hints of smoked dill lift from the glass, as a result of American oak aging. Silky smooth on the palate with flavors of boysenberry, pomegranate reduction and red currants greeting you at first sip. On the mid-palate, fresh notes of coconut and vanilla bean float in and leave you with a balanced finish.
"Very ripe and saturated in flavor, this wine lives up to its name and velvet-finish label. It is full bodied, mouthfilling and nicely viscous in texture. Late harvest and dried-fruit flavors like raisins and prunes dominate the aroma and palate, while moderate tannins and acidity liven it up a bit. A sense of richness helps all that flavor linger on the finish. Editors’ Choice." -Rated 90, Wine Enthusiast
