" Redemption Zinfandel is a special wine offering hefty flavors of blackberries and cherry liqueur along with the wonderful spice that is the signature of great Dry Creek Zins. In the glass there are aromas of dark fruits, plum, spice and toasty oak. Followed by lush flavors of blackberry, dark fruit, cherry cordial and a long finish. Winemaker Kevin Hall notes that ?this is a big wine with mouth filling texture?. This big wine calls for an equally rich food, try it with a long slow braised short rib, lamb shank or veal shank." ~ Winery notes
