Wine Details

Lot 313 has a wonderfully smoky nose interwoven with blueberry, raspberry, kirsch and black pepper. The palate is deeply concentrated with silky tannins and a rich, multi-faceted juicy finish. With framing acidity and a bold backbone playing off of the lively fruit, this wine is affable while showing great sophistication.

Cam Confidential

At its simplest, Field Blends are the result of a certain way of propagating vineyards in early 20th century California Viticulture (a technique most certainly learned from Europe however) wherein various vines were planted in a vineyard and the underperformers had their heads lopped off to be replaced by budwood from the best performers. Trial and Error or Darwinianism at its best if you will. Lot 313 is, of course, a fanciful interpretation of this technique but the result is anything but.

Lot 313, a blend of Zinfandel, Petite Sirah, Syrah and Carignane, is an exercise in gorgeously fruited, yet well structured wine that is a good reflection of the dirt from which it hails. This wine is the best of the old-world and the new, the classic and the updated…Purity of essence if you will.

Semi-translucent ruddy garnet. Jammy strawberry, cola, and earth nose. Medium bodied, raspberries, pepper, bing cherries, a few grainy tannins, low acid that disappeared by day 3, and a slightly sweet medium length finish.

Great wine for the price. We really enjoyed this wine and would have purchased it again if it were still available.

I really liked this blend and was sorry to see it sold out after my initial order. It is "jammy" like you would expect a good Zin to be, but also has the body and finish of a Cab. Very interesting and fun wine.

I'm not a big fan of Zin, but thought I'd give this a try based on the other components. Surprisingly good after a 30 minute decant. Right out of the bottle it is a little harsh (from the carignane?), but that after-taste disappears quickly and you get a good full bodied fruity wine that drinks well and has structure. Good value for a weeknight glass of wine.
