2020 Slam Dunk Red Blend

From Maayan Koschitzky

2020 Slam Dunk Red Blend...$13.99
58% Petite Sirah, 42% Zinfandel
Pure sun-ripened lusciousness, Slam Dunk showcases all the power and structure California has to offer. This lush, mega-hit blend knows how to turn up the volume!
Deep, dense and plush, the 2020 SLAM DUNK is inky black in color and filled with aromas of dark plum, violet, shaved cocoa and black pepper. The mouthfeel is packed with sweet black cherry, cinnamon, and espresso. Long and persistent on the finish, the wine shows rich, polished tannins and an opulent core of soft vanilla oak.
This mountain of flavor is designed to accentuate every “slam dunk” moment.
