From the bottle:
"From the vineyards of the West side of Paso Robles, it came...the "Biker". Big, Bold and Outrageous. Driven by loads of concentrated fruit and spice leaving a trail of lingering oak in its path. Will you ever be the same? Live big...seek the thrill.The 2009 Four Vines Paso Robles Biker Zinfandel begins with jammy aromas of blackberry and black raspberry but that's not all -- you'll also find spice, black pepper, licorice, bramble, sweet oak, vanilla and floral notes. In other words, there's a whole lot for your nose to discover in this one. Tasting reveals a lush, bold and spicy wine, just the way I like it. There's lots of jammy fruit as you would expect, but many of the other aromas from bouquet also carryover like black pepper, licorice and plenty of spice. All this goodness is wrapped up in a smooth, silky and almost chewy texture. It ends dry and spicy with long-lasting vanilla and caramel notes. This wine is crying out to be paired with meat drenched in BBQ sauce.
