Jackass Hill Zinfandel 2009

Varietal

Zinfandel

Growing Year Info

This was an even and "normal" growing season up until the end of the harvest, when rains came early. Early ripening grapes such as Chardonnay and Pinot Noir generally had an excellent year. All in all, it was a slightly warmer year than 2007 and the wines were deep and flavorful. Some critics tout this year as even better than 2007 because of a slightly cooler summer allowing these wines to age very well.

Tasting Notes

The rich 2009 Jackass Hill Zinfandel bursts forth with blackberry, cherry-cola, cocoa and spicy candied licorice flavors and aromas of herbs and lavender.
