Napa Valley Zinfandel

 

The mature and old vines in St. Helena produce a Zinfandel that is very aromatic with notes of Strawberry, rose pedals, raspberry, red licorice, Crème Brulee and Italian herbs. The wine is light bodied and has a fresh and clean entry with subtle tannins. A beautiful vanilla oak profile and feminine qualities make this wine very approachable. The finish is long and has a juicy mouthwatering character. Only 425 cases produced.

 

TECHNICAL INFORMATION

Harvest Dates: September 17th, 18th, and 21st, 2018

Alcohol: 14.8%

Vintage Notes: Seamless season of heavenly hang time and phenomenal phenolic development. February saw abundant rains, followed by lots of filtered light in spring and early summer. Both bud break and flowering occurred a bit late, but under ideal weather conditions, creating plentiful and even fruit set. Summer brought generous sun during the day and cooler marine influences, virtually uninterrupted by major heat spikes. The relatively mild summer followed by extended fall sunshine and moderate heat created near-ideal conditions for winemakers to allow their fruit to accumulate flavor complexity with gradual increases in sugar levels.

Ageability: This wine is pleasurable now and will be drinking beautifully over the next 2-5 years.
