User Reviews for Eos Late Harvest Zinfandel Port

Winemaker's Notes:

Due to a rain system then a sunny warm week with a healthy canopy the Zinfandel grapes for the Port ripened very evenly and quickly allowing for a slightly higher than normal sugar content. This led to a Port that is ready slightly earlier than normal with more of the Jammy nutty characters we look for. This will allow the wine to age for a longer period in the bottle allowing for more of the traditional nuttiness to come out as the fruit dies down. Although growing Zinfandel requires more work than other varietals, it is a labor of love for the Eos winemaking team. Intense aromas of prunes, molasses, roasted walnuts and maple syrup fill the nose. The nutty characters glide across the palate with essence of plums and espresso while the spiciness of dry earth, cedar, and cinnamon linger on the palate for an extended finish.
