2013 California Zinfandel
The 2013 California Zinfandel has aromas of roasted plum and black cherries with notes of vanilla and spice. On the palate, rich fruit flavors and sweet tannins are followed by a delicate, balanced finish.
Across California, 2013 was an exceptional vintage with more complexity and concen- tration than past vintages. Moderate summer temperatures on the heels of a warm, dry spring allowed the fruit to evenly ripen and develop.The largest component of the blend for this vintage comes from decades-old, head-trained vines in Lodi, which produce small clusters, giving the wine its intense color and concentration. Fruit from both the Russian River and Dry Creek Valleys produced smaller than average clusters,adding even more concentration and giving the wine complex fruit flavors.The Shenandoah Valley appellation provides the wine with its red fruit and spice characteristics for which the Zinfandel varietal is known. Blended, the various appellations produce a balanced, yet jammy and rich, Zinfandel.
