Not for the shy - indeed, this is the biggest, richest, tooth-staining Zinfandel we’ve ever done.
Lot 561 is sourced from a super high end producer on the hillside over 1500 feet above the Knights Valley floor, located at the eastern edge of Sonoma where it meets Napa Valley. While primarily known for producing some of the most age-worthy Cabernets in California, the winemaking genius behind this winery has also applied his talents to Zinfandel.
With over three years in barrel (from the terrific 2013 vintage, I might add), this uber ripe, bombastic, powerful wine is one of the most intense Zinfandels you’ll ever taste out of California. Due to various circumstances, I was able to negotiate an exceptional price, and at $15/bottle this is a crazy deal considering the level of talent and quality of grapes that went into this bottle.
