Russian River Valley Zinfandel 2014
This compilation of local Zinfandel vineyards represent a neighborhood blend of young vine, mature, established block and 95 year old zin. Aged in 15% new French oak for 20 months, with periodic racking out of barrel into tank for air and clarification. We are proud to offer our 12th vintage of this elegant, cool-climate blend to those seeking balanced, delicate zin.
Electrically charged red hue, this 3 vineyard blend greets one with floral, red fruit- cherry, tarry raspberry. As of September, 2017, the caramelly oak has yet to fully integrate. Spicy, intense red fruit bursts into the palate. The tannins are gripping but with time, I expect it to be juicy and long-finishing. Be patient and / or decant!
