The 2018 Gehricke Russian River Valley Zinfandel pours a vibrant purple complexion with hints of a garnet hue along the edges. The aroma boasts sweet confections like graham crackers laced with coconut and is fruit-filled with raspberry jam and red cherries.
This is a fruit-centered wine on the palate with fresh blueberries, raspberries and ripe, red plums. A juicy mid-palate with lively acidity heightens all of the flavors. Fine oak spice is subtly noticed at the finish to round out the fruit core.
