The 2013 growing season began early with hardly any rainfall and few significant heat spikes. These ideal grape growing conditions produced wines with a great balance of acidity and sugar, good tannin structure, and excellent fruit flavors. The older vines devigorized root system produces less, yet more intense, fruit highlighting Zinfandelís briary spice characteristic.
Wine Enthusiast - "Grippy in wound-up black fruit and black pepper, this is a ripe, bright and softly layered wine, completely in keeping with its old-vine status in dusty, complex notes. Spicy cinnamon and leathery pepper combine on the lengthy finish. Drink now through 2021. Cellar Selection"
