Tasting Notes: Grapes for this estate-produced gem come from head-pruned vines on Trentadue’s Estate Geyserville Ranch. It’s aged for 13 months in European oak, 25% new barrels. There are floral and black fruit notes on the bouquet with a hint of that marvelous Alexander Valley volcanic terroir. Concentrated flavors of blackberry, black cherry and white pepper harmonize with toasty oak and butterscotch nuances. A hint of licorice shows in the finish. The texture is plump and velvety and harmonizes with supple tannins on the lengthy finish. An elegant, simply gorgeous Zin that will develop in bottle for several years.
