Elevated aromas of baked berry pie, licorice and pepper intermingle with oak notes of vanilla and mesquite. The Jam Bomb delivers again with brambly blueberry middle surrounded by ripe flavors of boysenberry and blackberry. A big splash of Barbera, together with a little Petite Syrah and Mourvedre keep this wine rocking on your palate from its jammy start to its velvety berry/cinnamon finish. This Zinfandel lives on the edge of conventionality and crazy: Part brambly berry. Part blackstrap molasses. All in Maverick's one-of-a-kind balanced and weighty style.
Think big flavors or rich meats when pairing this wine. Go for cioppino, grilled stea, Beef Wellington, rack or leg of lamb, spare ribs or pork chops.
