AUGUST BRIGGS 2011 ZINFANDEL "OLD VINES" NAPA VALLEY 750mL

The 2011 Napa Valley Zinfandel is a blend of two very special vineyards. The first, Luvisi Vineyard was planted in 1908 and the second, Frediani Vineyard comes from two blocks, one planted sometime in the 1940ís and the second planted in the early 1950ís. Both vineyards are head-trained and dry-farmed, thus yielding small, very concentrated crops (less than two tons per acre). The 2011 has the classic Zin nose and still great depth and body even considering the cool temperature of the vintage. The wine is dark ruby in color with aromas of blackberry, black cherry, spice, ground nutmeg and cedar. On the palate, it is expressive with flavors of wild raspberries, currant, mocha and mint. This wine has a supple mouthfeel which leads into a long, milk chocolaty finish.
