From the glow in the dark label:
Imagine. Bumping down a cobblestone street on a wrought iron bicycle. Thump, thump...thump.
Thrill seekers of the past called this kind of ride a Boneshaker. Your teeth rattled & your bones shook. You felt it.
This is our Boneshaker. A full bodied Zin. With full-tilt flavors of blackberry, dark chocolate & vanilla.
The 2014 Boneshaker Zinfandel from Hahn Family Wines begins with aromas of plum, spice, pepper, vanilla, mint, chocolate and oh my -- this bouquet will definitely suck you right into the glass! The wine tastes big, rich and absolutely delicious and falls mostly into the big and bold category of Zinfandel. Smooth with flavors of blackberry, plum, licorice, spice and vanilla, pair this beauty with a bacon cheeseburger drenched in BBQ sauce for a little bit of heaven. It ends with sweet spice and lots of ripe, jammy fruit that lasts for a good while in the mouth.
