The 2019 Heritage Vines Zinfandel is delicious and wonderfully balanced. This vintage presents alluring aromatics of boysenberry, black cherry and raspberry with nuances of toasty cedar, warm spices and cocoa powder. On the palate, brambly flavors of dark berries come forward. The wine is complex, with bright acidity complimented by deeper notes of mocha, white pepper and wild sage brush. The tannins are silky and smooth to lend a round, rich mouthfeel. From start to finish, this remarkable wine offers refreshing acidity paired with excellent structure.
Aged 15 months in American, Hungarian and French oak; 23% new oak. 12-14 days in fermenters at 82-88 degrees Fahrenheit; pumped over twice daily.
