2013 V Madrone Zinfandel
Old Vine Zinfandels have an exceptional story to tell in the glass. At once the wine is seductive and spicy, yet also possesses an elegance, finesse and structure that can be compared to fine Burgundies as well. 2013 has all the best characteristics of a fine wine: hedonistic aromas of red fruits such as cherries, raspberries and Santa Rosa plums, and spicy notes of cinnamon and toasty oak and a creaminess that underscores the age of the vines. This wine is a great combination of aromatic and palate pleasure.
