St. Francis Zinfandel Old Vines 2013

Sku: 031110

Tasting notes
Ripe cherry, raspberry and plum flavors and aromas lead into this wine's densely fruity palate, followed by distinct notes of smoke, toast, rose petals and chocolate set in a voluptuous texture.

 Wine Advocate 90 points (Mar 2016)
I tasted five Zinfandels from St. Francis. The 2013 Zinfandel Old Vines, made from 50- to 110-year-old vines, is a gorgeous Zinfandel - deep ruby purple, with loads of blackberry and black cherry fruit, full-bodied opulence, good purity and richness. Drink it over the next 5-6 years.

Wine maker notes
2011 vintage: Awarded a Gold Medal by the 2014 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition, this is a classic old vine Zinfandel that pays tribute to its heritage with great structure,concentrated flavor and a long, luscious finish.
Aromas of blackberry jam, clove, nutmegand salted caramel are followed by flavors of juicy wild berries, vanilla bean and a touch of freshly ground pepper.

The grapes in our Sonoma County “Old Vines” Zinfandel come from vineyards in Sonoma Valley, Dry Creek Valley, Russian River Valley, and Alexander Valley. These head-pruned and dry-farmed vines range in age from 55 to more than 100 years old, producing low yields of fruit with highly concentrated, intense flavors.
Pairs well with barbecue, burgers and blue cheese.
