"A deep purple hue leads aromas of brambly dark fruit, black cherry, tobacco and dried Asian spice. Lively flavors of boysenberry and cassis prance across the palate, weighted by well-developed oak complexity. With intricate structure up front and firm tannins supporting the finish, the Harris Kratka Zinfandel commands both power and finesse. Pair the refined, gracious offerings of this wine with hearty meat dishes or a creamy risotto.
The 2007 vintage was a knockout season. A relatively dry winter and warm spring encouraged early budbreak. Moderate temperatures prevailed throughout the summer and fall. The long growing season allowed the grapes to linger on the vines, developing intense character and well-balanced acids for good aging potential. "
