2015 Orcio Zinfandel

Fermented and aged in a terra cota Amphora, this wine is always a mystery to me. It is the spitting image of the Cassata Zin, but more fruit driven yet at the same time more earth notes come through. Very floral and spicy with a cinnamon stick component that is as exotic and sensual as a Zinfandel can be. To truly understand this wine, one must taste along side the Cassata Zin aged in barrel. 75% Zinfandel / 25% Petite Sirah

Wine Profile

93 Pts Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, the 2015 Zinfandel Orcio Cassata Vineyard gives up notes of preserved plums, cranberry pie, baked raspberries and raisin cake with touches of dried Provence herbs, espresso and allspice. The decadently fruited, full-bodied palate gives a solid, chewy frame to rein in the boisterous fruit with lovely freshness and a very long, multilayered finish.
