Girard’s Old Vine Zinfandel from Napa Valley is a spectacular complex wine with aromas of black cherries, rose petals, raspberry, spice and vanilla.  Fantastic raspberry, black cherry, spice, vanilla and wood flavors follow on this medium to heavy textured wine with licorice notes on the lingering finish.  Some tasters noted cinnamon and huckleberry characteristics.  Barely missed finishing first in the Napa Valley tasting.
