The 2011 Cigar Zin has notes of deep black fruit, a punch of spice and crushed black pepper on the nose. The rich, lush and well-structured wine is hearty with exotic fruit characteristics.
Hand harvested at peak season to ensure quality and flavor, the fruit for Cigar Zin was sorted then fermented for 7 days. We prepared the wine in French (50%) and American (50%) oak barrels for 11 months.
Blend: 90% Zinfandel, 5% Petite Sirah, 5% Syrah
