2016 Zinfandel

The wine has beautiful aromas of strawberry soda, red licorice, five spice, and molasses.  The flavors remind the senses of candied cherry, autumn spice, cracked pepper, and horehound.  This Zinfandel has a refreshing mouthfeel that makes it an excellent wine for enjoying anytime or with your favorite grilled meats.   The wine exemplifies the concentration and grace with our old Zinfandel vines, of which were planted in 1977.  Enjoy this wine upon release through 2030 and beyond.

2016 was an excellent growing season for Zinfandel.  With even heat throughout the ripening period, the grapes could develop the ideal amount of flavor and depth before being harvested in mid-September. The wine was aged in for 10 months in 30% new American Oak.
