Wine of the Week: 1/20/2016
2013 Rombauer Napa Valley Zinfandel
This wine is deep purple-black, with a purple hue, and aromas of deep, dark fruits, blackberry, boysenberry and sweet vanilla. On the palate, the wine is rich and lush, with flavors of bright cherry and freshly baked pie. Concentrated vanilla and cherry build on the finish.
This wine blends lots from two select vineyards in Calistoga — our own Bennett Lane Vineyard and Ballentine Block 9.
The 2013 vintage brought another ideal growing season — long and warm without temperature extremes. The result was high-quality fruit that made for soft, rich wines with well-developed flavors. Sustainable farming practices were tailored to each block with the assistance of NDVI (Normalized Difference Vegetation Index) technology. All fruit was hand-picked at night and sorted in the vineyard.[products ids=”4026″ skus=””]
