We've produced a Zin that is very similar to our 2012 vintage. The 12 was more on the cherry and vanilla side, and the 13 is a more concentrated wine with the darker fruit. It is a big, rich, abundant Zin that is fleshy and decadent with dark fruit. We did a comparative tasting of the two with winemaker Michael Berthoud, and we all agree the 13 vintage has more of a peppery finish, and reminds us of blackberry cobbler. We are proud that the 13 won a gold medal at this years Sonoma County Harvest Fair.
