2014 Frediani Zinfandel
Of all the vineyard blocks we work with each year, none have a greater personal meaning to us than Zinfandel grown by Jim Frediani. You see, Jim has more vineyard knowledge in the cuff of his jeans than we could ever attain in a lifetime – and his 60-year old head-trained Zinfandel vines produce fruit so amazingly intense and pure that we feel blessed to be the ones to capture this magic in a bottle.
Heavenly, fruit-driven aromas of blackcurrant and blackberry cobbler greet savory whiffs of cinnamon, fennel, toffee and caramel. That dark fruit core translates to the palate oh-so-well, where you’ll also get plenty of spice right up front. With a rich, dark ruby hue and undeniable zest, the 2014 Calistoga Zinfandel is impossible to overlook.
