Artezin Zinfandel Mendocino County 2013

External Review by Great Wines Direct:

In 1978, Donald Hess founded the Hess Collection Winery on the volcanic slopes of Mount Veeder, 2,000 feet above the Napa Valley and defined a whole new approach to winemaking. Along with its mountain vineyards, the winery has won acclaim for its other estate vineyards in the Northeast and Southern ends of the Napa Valley and has been recognised as a premium producer of Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel and Chardonnay. Currently, 85 of the estate's 310 sustainably-farmed acres of vineyards are organically farmed and they are now in process of converting the remainder of the estate to organic farming. Grapes : 90% Zinfandel, 10% Petite Sirah Region : USA / California/ Mendocino Maker : David Guffy Notes : The colour is bright crimson red with a violet hue. The aroma is very bright, showing fresh raspberrry, boysenberry and pomegranate fruit, followed by classic "zinny" spice of nutmeg, cinnamon and back pepper. The fruit and spice continues on the palate, which is again fresh with hints of blueberry and huckleberry. The texture is round and rich for easy drinking and the tannins add to the lush mouthfeel. Serve : This wine was created for immediate enjoyment and pairs well with grilled meats, pasta and semi-firm cheeses such as an aged cheddar. ABV : 14.5%
