A blend of many old world varietals: Zinfandel, Barbera, Carignane, Petite Sirah, Sangiovese, Syrah, Negroamaro and Nebbiolo; that were grown on the hillsides of the Ukiah Valley. This wine has a dark purple-garnet color, with fruity aromas and flavors of plums, blackberry jam, spice and earth with hints of toasty oak. Rich full flavors, ample tannins and balanced acidity seamlessly carry through to a long, complex finish.2012 vintage rated 90 by Wine Spectator: "Recalls the hearty, jammy field blends of yore, with aromas of wild berry and smoky herb leading to zesty flavors of black cherry, licorice and cinnamon spice. Zinfandel, Carignane, Syrah, Sangiovese, Dolcetto, Petite Sirah and Pinotage. Drink now through 2019."
