The Gehricke Russian River Valley Zinfandel pours a vibrant purple complexion with hints of a garnet hue along the edges. The aroma boasts sweet confections like graham crackers laced with coconut and is fruit-filled with raspberry jam and red cherries. This is a fruit-centred 95% Zinfandel and 5% Petite Sirah wine that was aged 17 months in French, Hungarian and American oak, boosting a palate of fresh blueberries, raspberries and ripe, red plum. A juicy mid-palate with lively acidity heighten all of the flavours. Fine oak spice is subtly noticed at the finish to round out the fruit core.
