An unusual Zinfandel, with 10% Cabernet Franc mixed in, American Legend is from Frank Gunther's Vineyard in California's Shenandoah Valley (the Zin is anyway; the Cab Franc is estate). Smooth with a background of smoky berry flavor, it suggests sweet tarts mid-palate, and a taste of chocolatey vanilla on the finish.
