Maddalena Zinfandel shows flavors of ripe red fruit, including bright raspberry and spicy black plum. Barrel-aging contributes notes of cocoa and oak spice. The mouth is round with a rich, silky texture that is framed by soft tannins.
Black plum, fudge, loamy soil and a hint of purple flowers show on the nose of this bottling by the Riboli Family. The palate is rich while slightly tangy, offering flavors of black-plum pudding, plum skin, shaved chocolate and a hint of sagebrush.
