“Crunchy red and black fruits are lightened with a slight stone fruit character, giving way to earth-driven flavors. On the palate, the wine is velvety and soft with silky tannins. The concentrated black cherry and currant lingers, along with a finishing touch of spice.” - Jenica Flippo and Jameson Fink at TEXSOM, where this wine was tasted by 16 Masters of Wine and other wine professionals and received Judge’s Selection, Platinum Award.
Winemaker's Notes: "Zulal was founded to unearth and revive lost and forgotten grape varieties.
