Neal Family Vineyards Napa Valley Zinfandel 2017
|Region||California, Napa Valley, Rutherford|
|Brand||Neal Family Vineyards|
2017 gave us a light bodied Zinfandel that is delicate yet beautifully complex. With a pale ruby color and purple hues, this wine has aromas dominant of white fresh flowers, white apricot marmalade, ripe strawberries, juicy blackberries, and underbrush. Ageing in large Hungarian Oak puncheons provided characters of sweet Five Chinese Spice, salted caramel, sweet tobacco, and uncrushed black peppercorn. The finish is long and shows the classic soft chalky tannins that resemble the vineyard name - Rutherford Dust.
