Winemaker's Notes

"This is a brand from Hess Collection that specializes in Zinfandel. Crafted by Hess' talented winemaker, Randle Johnson, it's quite a good Zin, classic in its way, briary and brambly and spicy. Drinks deep and long in wild berry, pepper, licorice, Dr. Pepper and smoky flavors, and will be great with a steak."
-Wine Enthusiast

All Artezin vineyard sites are personally selected and are chosen for their Zinfandel winegrowing potential. These sites are both on the ridgelines and benchlands of the Ukiah Valley in Mendocino County. They represent both new generation and old, head-trained, family owned vineyards. Our growers are very dedicated and are meticulous farmers.

Garnet red in color, this Zinfandel expresses the forward red fruit profile of raspberry and boysenberry followed by nuances of black pepper, and allspice. Flavors that begin with black cherry and plum flow effortlessly into zesty spices such as clove, nutmeg and cinnamon. The palate is racy and plush with richness and full body. The tannins are round and seamless, yet provide solid structure. Created for immediate enjoyment, this handcrafted wine emanates classic varietal expression.

A somewhat average zin, a little on the light side, finish is a little flat.
