Our Zinfandel grapes are sourced from a small, family-owned vineyard located in the acclaimed Templeton Gap sub-appellation of Paso Robles. The head-trained forty-five year old vines are now cultivated by third generation growers, and are strictly dry-farmed. This results in a smaller, but more intense, crop.
2014 Paso Robles Zinfandel
13.6% Alcohol by Volume
We are excited to present our fourth vintage from this exceptinal vineyard. After a high temperature fermentation using natural yeasts for maximum extraction and expression of terroir, this wine was racked into new oak barrels and aged for eighteen months.
If you were a fan of our 2012 Kin's Zin, you are going to love this wine. Its beautifully intense ruby color is matched by bold aromas of baked cherry, nutmeg and pepper, followed by luscious baked black and red fruits and baking spices on the palate. Its aftertaste and texture is remniscient of dark chocolate, inviting another taste.
For a simple and elegant combination, try this wine with aged gruyere. It makes a delicious pair for pizza, marinara, or, classically, barbecue. It may be even more delicious than rare, which is saying something given the total production of sixty-two cases. Enjoy now, while it lasts.
