50% Zinfandel / 40% Petite Sirah / 5% Syrah / 5% Tempranillo

This new bottling of Ruby, with its greater proportion of Petite Sirah, is stylistically between the 2008 and 2009 offerings.  What hasn’t changed is that bright fruit profile lead by Zinfandel, while the other blend grapes meld together to create a port who’s sum is greater than the individual components alone.  The aroma is briary and rich with a touch of ripe raspberries and sandalwood.  The palate carries that signature fruit intensity, with pleasure-packed flavors of fresh baked berry pie, dark plum and red licorice.  This port wine will be at its best over the next five to eight years.
