Octavia Old Vine Zinfandel

This wine is lightly oaked and the fruit is definitely the showcase in this bottle. Dark black fruit such as blackberry and plum are complimented with a peppery note. This style of Zinfandel is ideal to pair with spicy dishes as the fruit add the perfect balance to the spice.
