The 2017 Holystone puts the “fan” in Zinfandel, namely those who are fanatic for boldness and depth of flavor. Prominent raspberries and boysenberries are joined by blueberries and plums. Notes of allspice, tobacco, and nutmeg idle at the periphery adding dimension to the profile. Smooth tannins and level acidity underscore a chewy texture. Notes of star anise and cinnamon emerge on the appetizing finish.
