Winemaker Notes
This Zin is the epitome of what fanatics of this Californian varietal will enjoy. It is a complete representation of the grape and I couldn’t be prouder of how this shining star of 2012 has evolved during it’s time in oak. An absolute beauty, this wine begins with incredibly brooding fruit. The concentration in the nose is profound. Notes of deep plum, black fruits, bright blackberry, raspberry, overripe cherry and hint of pepper spice fills every corner of the nose. The palate is yet again brooding but balanced and definitely not for the weak minded. Beginning with a flush effect of palate intrusion and flavor the mouth begins expansive and very, very round. I’m proud of this wine for the incredible command presence it possesses. Plush plum, blackberry, lush kirsch and hints of espresso spice fill around the tongue as this Zin finds it’s way to the back. The acidity is polished and the tannins enter from behind the opening act to support the transition of mid to back palate. Gentle handling of this wine allowed for fruit and flavor retention that is so incredibly generous. This is as close to a perfect Zinfandel I think I have ever made. Aged correctly I believe this will be a 7 year or longer Zinfandel.
