ROBERT CRAIG 2011 ZINFANDEL HOWELL MOUNTAIN 750mL

If Cabernet Sauvignon is king on Howell Mountain, then Zinfandel is definitely the crown prince. The Black Sears Estate near the Robert Craig winery has produced Zinfandel grapes of great renown for over 25 years. Topping out at 2400 feet, itís the highest vineyard on the mountain. Biodynamically farmed , the vineyardís soils are Red Aiken and Forward Loams on an east-facing slope, offering an ideal location for growing Zinfandel.

Howell Mountainís wild reaches come through in concentrated aromas of black raspberry fruit, mountain lilac, ground white/black pepper, and a touch of anisette and rose petals. Gorgeous wild berry fruit lavors flow from the opening aromatics, finding great depth in the mid-palate and enlivened by pepper, warm spices and a volcanic minerality. The wine finishes with supple tannins and luscious fruit, coming together in a strong, lingering finish.
