Armida Poizin Zinfandel 2016


SKU 114309


Inky black in color, our 2016 Dry Creek Zinfandel is bold with seductive aromas of plum, sweet raspberry, and smoky oak. A full-bodied, supple wine of red-vine licorice, anise, and blackberry jam, it screams Zinfandel! The Syrah in the blend contributes black pepper, racy acidity and firm structure, giving this wine a complex and rustic personality. Moderate oak aging contributes hints of clove and smoke. Approachable, balanced and a little crazy, this wine is purely intoxicating.

Wine EnthusiastThis lovable hearty red includes 10% Petite Sirah, the grapes pulled from five vineyards across the appellation. Smooth, thick and concentrated, it offers graham cracker, blackberry jam and a presence of dark chocolate.

Wine AdvocateThe 2016 Zinfandel Poizin is medium garnet-purple colored and delivers exuberant notes of raspberry tart and blueberry pie with an undercurrent of Indian spices, black pepper, potpourri and dusty soil. Full-bodied and jam-packed with red and blue fruit preserves in the mouth, it has a chewy frame and long, lively finish.
