T-Vine Zinfandel Howell Mt. Napa Valley "Black Sears Vineyard" 2008
The deep flavors were further concentrated through aging in a combination 30% new and 70% one year old American Oak for 12 months. Additional subtleties were evolved that only come with 12 months bottle age. The result is a Zinfandel with powerful spicy goodness and brambleberry jamminess the old vine parents would be proud of. Tough times build character and this little gem has more than it’s share. Matured: 12 months in 30% new & 70% one year old American oak and 12 months in the bottle. Makers Notes
We are a very small winery located off the beaten path in Calistoga, behind the owner - winemaker's home. There are just 3 people that work at T-Vine. We market, sell and deliver all of our own wine in California.
