Aromas and flavors of sweet herb, roasted carraway seed, fresh tarragon, and black olive not only frame this wine, they electrify it. With notes of black cherry and raspberry to boot, this wine is exotic and multi-dimensional It is both ripe and round from start to finish and explores the depths to which Zinfandel can go.
Each year Iron Hill is the most Syrah like of the lineup. Grown on steep hillsides reminiscent of the Côte-Rôtie, the wines from Iron Hill are described in similar fashion to those from the Northern Rhône. This vintage has a deeper, more structured cut to it.
This wine tastes of place. Our most Northern Rhône style Zinfandel. Loads of Minerality! As Chapoutier says, this wine is earth inspired.
