"The Louvau Vineyard, located at the north end of Sonoma County’s Dry Creek Valley, is ideal for growing Zinfandel. Succulent and ripe, the 2003 vintage is pleasingly purple with fragrant notes of blackberry jam. Luscious fruit is the focal point on the palate with a juicy, voluptuous mouthful that is classically Zinfandel. Hints of brown spice from the 100 percent French oak barrels punctuate the mid-palate followed by a long and complex finish. "
