2018 Highwayman Trailblazer
Deep purple color. Bright and dense boysenberry and red currant jelly with hints of strawberry licorice are the result of the marriage of zinfandel and petite sirah. The rich, fruit-dominant midpalate swims over and settles into a looooong herbal, English breakfast finish. In between, we sensed spices like cardamom and green peppercorns and touches of orange pith. This ones got alot goin on, folks. Tingly tannins will give it cellar life...this is a terrific vintage of Trailblazer that you won't want to miss. Pairs perfectly with Japanese Pork Tonkatsu--pork cutlets with a plum based barbeque/curry sauce.
