2019 Girasole Vineyards Zinfandel
88 Points/Wine Enthusiast
The fruit for this 2019 Zinfandel is a “cream of the crop” combination from all 3 of our vineyard properties, with the majority sourced from our hillside vineyard, Bella Collina (63%), our winery site (27%) and the home ranch in Redwood Valley (10%). Each of our vineyard locations brings a unique component to the wines based on their soils, elevation and microclimates.
Medium ruby in color with pale purple hues. On the nose, ripe blackberry, jammy boysenberry and hints of black pepper. On the palate, flavors of dried dark plum, warm caramel and spice. The youthful yet soft tannins are in perfect balance with the smooth oak texture, delivering a long, lasting finish (100% Zinfandel).
