Remarkable depth and balance with respect to integrated layers of fruit begin to define the Genoa XVIII. It’s all about the blend: Zinfandel for power, Syrah for spice, and Petite Sirah for color and depth. Black cherries, black plums, and ripened figs are evident. Lifted layers of anise, cocoa, and smoky cedar coalesce as well. Elegant texture framed by supple tannins and keen acidity deliver a lengthy and nuanced finish.
