2017 Sweetwater Springs Vineyard Zinfandel 'Isabel'
2017 Sweetwater Springs Vineyard Zinfandel 'Isabel'
This wine is name after Jeff & Alexandra's daughter

Our daughter Isabel is much more mellow and vibrant in her life, with music as a guiding light. To me, this is what zinfandel is all about. A vibrant, saturated cherry red color, with a perfumed aromas of dried cranberry/Bing cherries/wild raspberry, with wisps of salted licorice, toasted black sesame seeds. The palate is seductively ripe round and supple, with flavors that echo its aromatics, but with the savory components as the lead that flows into a wine that showcases the intensity and richness that only this steep hillside can create.

Tasting Notes
95 Pts Jeb Dunnuck - I loved the nose on the 2017 Zinfandel Sweetwater Springs Vineyard, a classic Zinfandel loaded with blue fruits, flowery incense, white pepper, and cedary spice aromas and flavors. Playing in the medium to full-bodied, elegant end of the spectrum, it has a seamless texture, light tannins, beautiful balance, and a great finish. It's a gorgeous Zinfandel from this vintage to drink over the coming 7-8 years. 92 Pts Wine Advocate - Drink Date: 2020 - 2026 The 2017 Zinfandel Sweetwater Springs Isabel is a delicate, Pinot Noir-esque Zinfandel with a medium ruby color. It has a pretty perfume of peaches and tricolored berry fruits with accents of dusty earth and floral perfume. The palate is medium-bodied, rounded, soft and juicy with perfumed, nuanced flavors and a long, layered finish.
