2017 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 of our old Zinfandel vines, which were planted in 1977.  Enjoy this wine upon release through 2030 and beyond.

Vinification

2017 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.

Wine Profile

The final vintage for our beloved Zin Block 1 has produced a stunner.  Originally planted in 1977 these vines have been more than generous over the years and have produced another delicious wine one last time.  The wine shows off with exuberant aromas of Olallieberry, apricots, clove, dark chocolate and cinnamon spice.  The palate is inviting and rich with flavors like cherry pie, brandied cherries, anise, birch beer and fig.  The smooth mouthfeel keeps the wine drinkable and integrated throughout as it finishes with notes of orange zest and licorice.  Enjoy this wine now through 2031.
