This vintage of Zinrah, our 50/50 blend of Zinfandel and Petit Sirah captures the incredible growing conditions we were afforded in the 2013 vintage. The grapes for this blend come from the single estate, Williams Bridge Vineyard. One of the most prized estate and hillside vineyards in the Sierra Foothills.
At first swirl, the eyes capture squid ink purple and the aromas are high-toned perfume of rose petal, cranberry, blueberry and oregano. Several more minutes reveal hints of wild sage, allspice and dark cherry characters. The palate is full and rich, mouth filling, complexity carrying notes of espresso, sweet vanilla, anise and dark fruit tones. The tannins are smooth and supple providing balance and sophistication. Charming and polished from start to finish, this is a wine that will age beautifully for years to come.
Pair with bacon, blue cheese, pork ribs, lamb chops or goat over a wood fire.
