The Vintage: 2020 was a profoundly challenging year for everyone across Northern California as multiple wildfires began in late August. Fortunately, we were able to harvest a significant portion of our Zinfandel before it was negatively affected by smoke.
Tasting notes: Darker in both color and fruit profile than recent vintages, the 2020 Zinfandel leads with aromas of blackberry compote, raspberry liqueur, and dried tobacco. In the mouth, a healthy dose of Mataro (Mourvedre) adds impressive length to the mid-palate, with flavors of ripe red raspberry, dark cherry, and cocoa powder. The wine brightens on the finish, with a note of blood orange complementing the plush Zinfandel tannins. GH
