Jackass Vineyard Zinfandel 2012

Varietal

Zinfandel

Growing Year Info

This was a fairly mild year, similar to 2007 and 2009. The harvest looked like it was going to be early because of the early heat and bud break, but this ended up being a long, drawn out season with consistent growing temperatures. The wines have good tannins, structure, and a nice acid balance, due to the long growing season.

Tasting Notes

The 2012 Jackass Vineyard Zinfandel shows aromas of espresso, licorice, and red raspberry with hints of meat and peppercorn. Plenty of depth on the palate with plum, cherry, and sweet currant notes. It will benefit from an hour decant.
Drink 2014 – 2022.
