2011 California Field Blend
91 Pts, Gold Medal: SF Int'l Wine Competition; Gold Medal: 2014 Denver Int'l Wine Competition; Dense fresh black fruit notes and delicate raspberry, with accents of spice and tobacco.
Opens up with a beautiful nose of raspberries and spice. The palate is juicy and begins with a spicy top note, with flavors of raspberry and the dark fruit impact of Petite Sirah. The Petite Sirah really adds muscle to the wine, but it definitely still retains the soft and fruity Zinfandel elements as well. This is a delicious, complex wine that's still perfect for everyday drinking.
Style: Medium, Fruity
Flavors: Raspberry, Spice, Tobacco
Primarily sourced from the same vineyards as fan favorite Lot 362, Lot 386 is a fantastic wine that begins with a Zinfandel base, with layers of Syrah, Petite Sirah, and a touch of Graciano to round things out. If you're a fan of the Field Blends we've released so far, you won't be disappointed with this one. Big, bold, beautiful.
