2016 Pagani Ranch Zinfandel
Sonoma Valley, California, $39.99
“Ample winter rains and calm spring weather provided excellent conditions for flowering and set. The concentrated fruit from the century-old vines blended perfectly with the softer texture of the young vines. Lively acidity helps focus the layered, brambly fruit on the palate. Enjoyable upon release, this harmonious zinfandel will develop over seven to eight years.
Black cherry, pepper and chaparral on the nose. Briary red fruit, well defined, chalky tannins and refreshing acidity on the palate. Long sensuous finish.” Winery Notes.
