CALCAREOUS 2012 ZINFANDEL "TWISTED SISTERS" PASO ROBLES 750mL

2012 was an ideal vintage for Paso Robles. A cool to mild spring allowed for gradual, stress free development of fruit. September and early October were warmer than usual which allowed for fantastic ripening. Warm days during harvest also tend to produce wines that come of age quicker, thus requiring shorter barrel aging time and wonderfully fresh wines in the bottle. The Zinfandel for 2012 came from Kate’s Vineyard on Kiler Canyon Road and the Herder Vineyard near Creston to the East of Paso Robles. B y combining a cool climate vineyard with a warm climate vineyard, Calcareous can produce a blended Zin that displays the strengths of both.

The beautiful dark ruby color gives evidence of a dense yet lively wine. The nose is an intriguing blend of tart bing cherry and rich boysenberry pie aromas. The mouth feel continues this trend of opposites with wonderful acid balancing full bodied flavors of blackberry, licorice and pepper. The finish is rich yet clean, offering a hint of American oak vanilla.
