Paydirt Zinfandel 2013
Classic Zinfandel on the nose: Briary, sun-drenched and freshly picked blackberries, exotic red fruit/cactus fruit, pie crust, and fresh preserves. Big and round on the palate, but medium in weight. Limestone-rich soils encourage higher acidity in the wine, and ultimately result in a very balanced Zinfandel. Pure expression of fruit and varietal: no new oak, very moderate tannins, and an evenly distributed measure of flavor, richness, and balance.
Wine SpectatorBig, plush and powerfully ripe, yet appealing for the style, with bold notes of huckleberry jam, caramel and spice. Drink now through 2019. 877 cases made.
