2014 Zinfandel, 750ml
If you missed this one, we're sorry...and if you were some of the "Fortunate" who got this-we hope you enjoyed it! We sure did!
Fans of the old-school, brambly style of Napa Zinfandel will enjoy this balanced and supple wine. Showing Mt. Veeder characteristics of flavor-driven expressions of plum, pomegranate and blackberry with dense, rich tones of tasty spices that linger on the long finish.
Displaying garnet glints in the glass, this wine is substantially more rich and full-bodied than the cheerful color might lead one to expect. Opening aromas of ripe fruit, especially blackberry and cherry, greet the nose, with more complex aromas of grilled meat and herbs appearing as the wine opens up. From the first sip, flavors of juicy plums, heady raspberries and wild blackberries are blanced by medium acidity, ensuring this Zinfandel isn't liquid jam or a fruit bomb. Ripe cherry, dark fruits and baking spices bloom on the palate, displaying the harmony between fruit, alcohol and acidity. With its intriguing, herb-infused gaminess and spicy playfulness, this is a Zin that plays well with foods. We love it with BBQ ribs..I mean, we're crazy about this wine and Gary's zippy grilling sauce! Try it with grilled portabella mushrooms, your favorite sausages, beef, lamb, pork and venison, either braised, grilled or roasted. 100 cases produced.
