2013 Zinfandel, Luvisi Vineyard
The 2013 vintage is proving to be full of deep complexity and this year our Zinfandel is leading the vanguard. Again hailing from Luvisi Vineyard in the Calistoga AVA, this “young” old vine Zinfandel is sourced from blocks at the spritely age of 63 years old. As we all know from personal experience, with age comes a blossoming of character and style and this Zin has it in spades. Bright florid notes of rose, raspberry and fig along with subtle but beautiful hints of cigar box and clove dance inside the glass and ultimately fill the room. The palate evokes the fresh raciness of the 2012 vintage, but with spice and bramble beautifully layered into the classic red and black berry notes. The finish is long and lovely making this an ideal wine for pairing with a meal or enjoying simply on its own.
With the richness of this vintage, this will pair beautifully with Burgundian fare; think seared rabbit with wild mushrooms or roasted duck. Enjoy this wine now through 2020.
