A lovely Zinfandel we waited too long to open. Needed ample breathing time and still had some must, but good structure, deep berry, earthy bramble, strong acid, leather on the nose.

Amazing old vine Zin from AVV. The 2013 is stellar with a great QPR. This vintage has one of the most powerful fruit filled nose and has a dense cedar and leather core with earth and balanced spice. Highly recommended!

Day 2 of this Zin and I can't believe it wasn't finished on day 1.

Coconut on the nose. It's crazy! Tastes like a hint of coconut, boysenberry and black licorice. Have not been disappointed yet by an Alexander Valley wine.
