We set out to make a Zinfandel as tenacious as the Badgerhound. It was originally created as a pet project, but it has quickly gained a cult following in select markets nationwide. One pour, and you’ll see why. The 2016 vintage presents appealing aromas of crushed raspberries and blackberries are framed by vanilla and cigar box notes. This wine shows sweet concentrated fruit in the mouth with plenty of oak, tannins and acidity to balance the ripeness. The finish is long, rich and intense. This 2016 vintage should age well for the next 5 years. Pairs great with barbecue dishes such as St. Louis-style ribs, Memphis pulled-pork and Texas-style brisket.
