Blend: 96% Zinfandel, 3% Petite Sirah, 1% Alicante Bouchet
The 2006 vintage was a cool, long growing season, which allowed the Zinfandel clusters to ripen evenly,
permitting ideal harvesting conditions. Joel Gott's Zinfandel vineyards are in the top growing regions in California:
Napa, Sonoma, Lodi and Amador. This wine reflects the soil and environment of each distinct location.
The vineyards in Lodi and Amador are old head-trained vines, which are dry-farmed and produce deeply
concentrated fruit. This fruit combined with the depth of Napa Valley fruit and the spiciness from cool
Sonoma County, creates a blend that truly shows California Zinfandel at its finest.
Dark ruby red color with
supple, mouth filling tannins that offer lively acid structure and an elegant balance. Classic currant, plum
and sweet oak aromas lead to ripe berries, cherry, and spicy flavors with a long, sweet and juicy finish.
"Even better is the brilliant 2006 Zinfandel, which boasts fabulous ripeness along with a full-bodied, tarry, briery nose revealing plenty of pepper, spice, black cherries, and berry fruit. This full-bodied, dense, bargain-priced Zin includes 5% Alicante Bouchet in the blend.
