2015 Sweetwater Springs Vineyard Zinfandel 'Isabel'

Every year this wine blows me away! A zinfandel, unlike any other. Maybe it’s the steep hillside vineyard, or part being fermented in concrete or the use of larger format barrels, but this wine's aromatics go in so many ways. From high tones mid notes and a little baritone that may come from the touch of Petite Sirah that is in the blend. Exotic raspberry and strawberry swirl from the glass, with hints of wild herbs and white pepper. The palate is lush with black cherry and Petrichor notes, intertwined with dark chocolate coffee beans. As rich as this wine is, it stays balance and totally intriguing.
