Winemaker Tasting Notes: This youthful and authentic Zinfandel harbors back to the Zins of the 1970ís with cool-climate density and structure. A blend of five different Zinfandel lots, each exhibiting unique Zinfandel characters, this wine highlights the complexity for which Zin should be known. The nose immediately showcases the cranberry and pie cherry essence layered with anise spice and crushed white pepper. Framing all this is a brooding dark berry fruit with an earthiness that is hallmark of El Dorado terroir. The entry has a supple nature loaded with sweet black cherry and notes of cola, melding into a mid-palate both plush and elegant. Finally, the finish is tight with structured tannins and hints of black pepper. Watch how this young Zin opens up in the glass, and it will only improve with time!
