Old Vine Zinfandel 2015
This beautifully balanced old vine zinfandel is our first production from the Süess Vineyard. It is deep red in color and entices the nose with fruity mouthwatering aromas of ripe Santa Rosa plums, Chambord Liqueur, nutmeg, cardamom and hints of sage. Flavors of jammy forest fruit, mango and meaty bacon balance the natural acidity with black pepper spicy notes and a touch of cedar. This wine has a long finish with medium tannins and a trace of new oak. It will continue to age beautifully and it’s great acid will keep it fresh on the palate. Liz recommends paring this with Parisian style steak and “frites” with a black peppercorn white wine sauce.
