2013 Zinfandel Redwood Valley

Redwood Valley

The fruit for this wine originate from Kazmet, Oldham, and Vittorio Vineyards all head pruned dry farmed vineyards in Redwood Valley. The majority of this wine is Zinfandel from Kazmet and Oldham vineyards with a touch of Syrah and Cariganne blended in for complexity. This warmer inland region of Mendocino County reliably ripens these varietals and provides rich fruity flavors. This wine has aromas of dark berrys, candied cherries, cocoa, damp earth, and a spicy hint of cedar. It has flavors of black cherry, plum, red pepper, with hints of earth and spicy wood on the finish. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with soft tannins and has lingering fruit that persists on the palette. Its fruitiness is focused by the acidity of the cariganne, and the syrah adds to its complexity with earthy and dark fruit notes. The rich candied fruit of this wine would pair well with the sweetness of barbequed beef or pork ribs. Cases: 558
