2013 Contra Costa Zinfandel
Distinctly representative of place, our 2013 Contra Costa Zinfandel embodies this unique growing region,” comments Winemaker John Kane. “One of the oldest winegrowing regions in the state, this area produces some amazing, old world-style Zinfandels.” Ancient vines, combined with the terroir and climate of the area, impart a distinct brambly character. Caramel and baking spice aromas join the dark fruit with a hint of tar on the nose. Rustic in its restraint, the palate is firm yet supple and inviting. Rugged tannins and mocha spices escort the flavors into a long, satisfying finish.
