Joel Gott Zinfandel 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2011 Joel Gott Zinfandel has aromas of raspberries, blackberries and blueberry jam. APPELLATION: Dense and rich on the front of the palate with bright acidity on the mid-palate, and a long finish. Late spring rains and a cool summer meant a smaller crop and longer time on the vine for fruit during the 2011 harvest. The largest component of our blend for this vintage is old vine Zinfandel from Lodi. Fruit there was picked before the rains hit California well into harvest, and the longer than average hangtime in Lodi made for wines with better concentration than those from other appellations. Fruit from Sonoma, Mendocino and the Shenandoah Valley in Amador maintained the spice and red fruit characteristics that they’re known for. Blended, the various appellations produce a balanced, yet jammy and rich, Zinfandel." -Winery

Aromas of sweet cherries, red plums, blackberries and vanilla spice. The wine is juicy and full of red fruit, with a soft mid-palate and a bright, lingering raspberry finish.
