2018 La Storia Zinfandel

Tasting Notes

The 2018 La Storia Zin is a blend of 63% Blocks 303 Zinfandel and 21% Block 305 with small percentage of the new Block 406 Petite Sirah. All Zin blocks in 2018 were harvested in mid to late September. About 15% of the grapes were fermented in small ½ ton open top fermenters for additional complexity of aromas and textures. The wine is bright and lively with intense “Zini” aromas of dark cherry, blueberry and plums and some of the typical raisins aromas. The fine oak barrel aging brings in subtle aromas of vanilla, maple, cinnamon and slight toast and smokiness. The mouth feel is solid, with medium to full body and very soft and elegant tannins that accentuate the wine’s long and juicy finish with lively acidity. Zinfandels when balanced are very versatile food pairing wines with broad range and this wine will satisfy your palate with many of your favorite dishes. The wine is delicious now but with some patience and proper aging in 2-5 years it will be even better. Cheers!
