Winemakers Notes - The 2011 Heritage Vines Zinfandel presents a wonderful profile of blueberry, red currants, and silky structure that speak to the cool 2011 vintage. An additional few minutes in the glass reveal underlying mineral nuances that make this wine really stand out. The moderate alcohol nature of this Zin provides smooth tannin and structure, making the palate very well balanced. The fruit is evident but not overpowering, with layers of black cherry, mixed berries, currants and all spice. 84% Zinfandel, 16% Petite Sirah.
