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. Pair this wine with your favorite BBQ staples- we suggest Spicy Baby Back Ribs.
