2014 Reserve Zinfandel

This is the serious one.  But how tasty can you get a Zinfandel?  All this release comes from only one barrel so there are only 30 dozen available.  Sure to be a classic, it is going to age for years and enthusiasts will kick themselves if they miss out. 

The selected best of this vintage matured for another 6 months. One new Pennsylvania American oak barrel, the other second vintage. These delicious grapes were exclusively from our small patch of low yielding vines, grown on gravelly loam with particular attention to soil health and no synthetic chemical input.
Delight your nose with black currant, boysenberry, cranberry and tones of cigar box and cedar.  Let your palate enjoy a rich fruit cake and boysenberry jam flavours that have a spicy, red currant finish.  The refined acid balance and soft tannins provide for a long, warm, mouth-filling wine. Enjoy now with roasted meats, but this will develop more with cellar time (7+ years). 

TASTING NOTES

The wine has a good depth of colour with attractive gold hints, there are complex tropical tones of guava and pineapple fruit to smell. The taste shows good length and the fruit gives a smooth and satisfying flavour and fullness.  An attractive complexity gives it that extra dimension.

CELLARING

Enjoy now, but this wine will continue to develop with time in the cellar (7+ years).
