Zinfandel, Sonoma Valley

Tasting notes

Zinfandel, Sonoma Valley, CA – This fruit comes from an old rocky creek-bed in the heart of Sonoma Valley. On the nose, this Zinfandel boasts heavy notes of red and blackberry fruits, boysenberry and raspberry intertwined with wonderful spice notes of white and black pepper. On the pallet, the flavors continue with red and blackberry fruits. The wine has a wonderful texture with balanced mouthwatering acidity and a nice grip of tannin structure on the finish that gives focus to this incredibly delicious Zinfandel.

Production notes

Harvest 2013

With great back-to-back vintages, 2013 was every bit as good as 2012 has proven to be. Amidst concerns about another drought year, the rain gauges filled up to about 80% of the yearly average. The growing conditions were very favorable, which resulted in a remarkably similar growing season to the exceptional 2012 vintage. The only notable difference, however, was the increase of heat units in 2013, as measured by the Growing Degree Day index. With below average rainfall for the season bud break initiated earlier than average over the past several years. April showers helped to drive good shoot growth and set the plants up for May flowering. Excellent weather at flowering time allowed for fantastic set and a bountiful yield across all appellations and varieties. Even with an earlier start to the growing season, the grapes had the ideal amount of time on the vine to achieve full maturity without any threat of inclement weather late in the season. Wines from the 2013 vintage exhibit extremely pure and polished tannins and the acidity will provide longevity, but the supple structure also offers earlier enjoyment.
