The 2016 Volcano Ridge Zinfandel from pre-prohibition era vines is as easy as slipping on your favorite robe, but with a complexity that will captivate like the perfect little black dress. The fruit notes of the bouquet remind us of pulling a freshly baked blackberry pie from the oven in August, with the dark fruit and subtle, nutty spice. It expresses just a nip of cacao on the finish, but with a relaxed and easygoing tannin, there can be no doubt about how easily drinkable this wine is. One of the best parts of this Oregon Zinfandel is how beautifully it is aging and evolving in the bottle. With a ruby red color that does Snow White’s apple proud, the 2016 Volcano Ridge Zinfandel is the perfect accompaniment to any evening.
