Can you believe the Problem Child is growing up? The vines are getting older and with that comes complexity. Consistently Zinfandel dominant, the wine screams out with rich ripe fruit that is constrained by the addition of Syrah and Mourvèdre. These additions provide a savory component that is matched with smoked meats and the pleasing aromatics of toast. Delicious today, but can cellar for 7 years.

"A red blend with personality, this is ripe but stays focused, offering aromas of smoky raspberry and grilled rosemary, with zesty flavors of baked cherry, pepper and anise. Zinfandel, Syrah and Mourvèdre. Drink now through 2019."
