Our Cuvée Jacqueline is elegant, pretty and complex, much like our friend Jacqueline herself. Sustainably farmed vines and the wild yeast that grow upon their grapes have created this wonderfully rich and creamy Zinfandel.
Aromas of black cherry, plum and raspberry fruit combine with a beautiful hint of vanilla-oak loveliness, smoothly textured in mouth, very creamy and round, the finish is long and has lush jammy fruit.
