Alcohol: 15.1%

Textbook bud break and flowering gave us high hopes for harvest, and Mother Nature did not disappoint. Summer temperatures remained in a precise range during the day, before dipping into the low 50s at night. This wide arc provided gentle, steady ripening and balanced sugar levels, and by evading late rains we finished with a bountiful harvest of undeniably excellent fruit in 2012.

Tasting note:
A purity and clarity of aromas distinguish the 2012 Zinfandel with Bing cherries, brown sugar, roasted coffee, and oak vanillin leading the way to darker scents of cocoa and forest floor. Dark and jammy fruit flavors of blackberry, wild raspberry and cassis show up on the palate followed by a lingering, berry finish. Layered and complex with dark undertones, this is the perfect wine for roasted wild game, rich winter stews or wild mushroom lasagna.


Critical Praise

The 2012 vintage has not yet been reviewed but the 2011 received this review below:
“This Zin is luxurious in texture, with rich, intricate tannins and balance. The flavors suggest black and red currants, red plums, Dr. Pepper cola and exotic spices. Great with highly spiced beef, chicken and game dishes.” - 90 pts (Steve Heimoff, Wine Enthusiast)
