Tasting Notes: In 1978 Hank Wetzel created one of the first “pop” zins, and this 41st release shows the continuing evolution in complexity and value. Sourced from 6 of their favorite vineyard sites. Each lot was kept separate thru de-stemming and fermentation, then aged for14 months in American oak. Beautiful color, great complexity, and a smooth lingering finish. Wonderful color with spice notes of black pepper and vanilla. Paired this with a carbonara dish instead of our favorite Chianti, and were richly rewarded.
