The COMET was created by carefully selecting individual barrels of old-vine zinfandel made from the Todd Brothers Ranch in Alexander Valley—one of the top vineyards in Sonoma county. These selected barrels were then blended with a small amount of dark, intense Petite Sirah to add just the right amount of balance. A rich, full-bodied wine, The COMET has the intensity and complexity that is the perfect accompaniment to holiday feasts of any type.
The wine starts with intense aromas of black raspberry, wild cherry, and black currant fruit, with highlights of chocolate and black pepper spice. In the mouth, the wine has a great velvety texture and explosive flavors of blackberry, cassis, plum, clove, and black pepper, with a long, spicy finish that lasts for minutes.
