2015 Howell Mountain Zinfandel


1680 in stock

SKU: 2015_HMZin


Hidden up in Howell Mounting is a small planting of Zinfandel; uncommon on a mountain where Cab is King. Our 100% Zinfandel was harvested from 103 year-old, head pruned vines. This showpiece spent a year and a half in a mix of various oaks to add to its layers: 40% low-aroma, new Oak, 40% Neutral Oak, and 20% American Oak. The maturity of the vines and the terroir of Howell Mountain shine through.

Tasting Notes: The nose is drenched with the smell of caramelization (marshmallows, butterscotch, or crème brulee – your pick), fig jam, cedar, dried fill from the American Oak, and leather. The palette has ripe plums, blackberry pie, and cedar.
