Napa Valley Reserve Zinfandel

 

Winemaker’s Tasting Notes: This wine is layered with a spectrum of black and red fruit characters. The base blend stood out from the beginning at fermentation and was culled from three Oak Knoll District Biale estate vineyard blocks. The final blend was finished with touches of Tempranillo, Petite Sirah, Syrah, Carignane and Early Burgundy. The wine is aged for 16 months in 50% new medium plus toasted French oak Burgundy barrels. Aromas and flavors of blackberry liqueur, raspberry preserves, fig newton, graham cracker, roasted walnut, cinnamon, clove, and dried flowers. It dazzles above the glass, resonates on the mid palate, and shimmers on the finish. It is exemplary of the Biale house style wherein balance and refinement are everything. There is a burst of Zinfandel essence and vineyard expression in this diligently-farmed wine with the nuances and detail that reflect highly-focused veteran craftsmanship. Made for the ages, this wine is expected to cellar for 10 years or more. Only 96 cases produced.
