This presumptuous nose of brambly blackberry notes, cinnamon stick, graham cracker and lavender is as intriguing as the palate which gives salted caramel, black tea and strawberry balsalmic notes. The generous fruit provides a silky middle and soft finish with lingering spicy tannins.

Ponzi's Tavola consistently out-performs reserve-level wines from elsewhere. Credit the outstanding vineyard sources, which include Ponzi's Avellana vineyard, and of course the skillful winemaking, which begins with native yeast fermentation. It was aged 11 months in 20% new French oak and has scents and flavors of Bourbon tea, cinnamon spice and black cherry fruit. There's plenty of power and a clean, fresh finish.

Sleek and vibrant, with lively raspberry and spice flavors that linger on a supple finish. Drink now through 2021. 12,000 cases made.
