2014 Bobcat Reserve Zinfandel

Bobcat Zinfandel is made in a non-traditional voluptuous winemaking style. The grapes are picked at maximum sugar levels to attain the most extreme concentratison possible. Rich flavors, a hint of sweetness and high alcohol content makes this the most intense wine from Selby. Are you surprised it is the most popular? Savor the flavor of the elusive Bobcat before he is gone for another year.
