From the bottle:
We have been farming our land since 1943, blending our northern Italian heritage with our California roots. Our family chose the lion from St. Mark's Cathedral in Venice, Italy to symbolize our rich history. Today, we continue this tradition by offering Estate wines for you and your family to enjoy.
Our Estate Zinfandel is a combination of old vine fruit from one block of our Bliss ranch and fruit from younger, head-trained vines from another Bliss block planted in an old-world style. The result is a wine that has both depth and luscious fruit flavors. Aromas of berry cobbler, black pepper and Christmas spice give way to a blackberry jam entry, leading to black pepper and cumin and a blueberry vanilla finish.
Grown, Produced & Bottled by Brutocao Cellars
The 2014 Brutocao Zinfandel begins with a wonderful Zinfandel aroma of brambly fruit (red cherry and blackberry mainly), plenty of deeply integrated pie spice, black pepper, licorice, mint, wintergreen and vanilla. It's a very attractive aroma and just like the label suggests it smells a bit like Christmas!
The medium-bodied wine tastes pretty much just as it smells which is a very good thing. This is not a big over the top Zin but is both deeply flavorful and extremely balanced. It definitely has plenty of oak influence but it integrates quite well especially after a little time in the glass.
This very well-made and satisfying wine ends with a dry, very long finish that even features the return of the Christmas candy spice notes from the nose. Wonderful!
