Lithe and ethereal with a ruby core and soft rose rim, this wine sparkles in the glass with crystalline clarity. Swirl to reveal a buoyant bouquet of orange blossom, tuberose, and caramel-shrouded vanilla bean. Following closely are grounding notes of cedar, flint, and tobacco that banter with effervescent cola and subtle clove. Missing is Westside’s hallmark note of wild strawberries in the field, now replaced by black cherry compote with winter spice and crumble. Smooth and silky mouthfeel evokes antique velvet. Seamless integration and complex architecture make this wine one to remember long after it’s gone. Drink now through 2022 and savor while you do; this is our second to last vintage of Westside Zinfandel from the original vines!
