Jackass Vineyard Zinfandel 2015



Growing Year Info

The 2015 harvest was the earliest that we have had in a while, starting on August 12th. Even though the previous three years were all very early harvests, 2015 had them all beat. We had a very dry spring with cool weather during bloom (April-May) which caused a long fruit-set period that resulted in some shatter, creating a reduced crop size by 35-50% in some vineyards. The combination of lower yields and early spring bud break meant the ripening period started off early and progressed rapidly. Despite these challenging growing conditions and lower yields, the fruit quality for 2015 was exceptional.

Tasting Notes

The nose on the 2015 Jackass Vineyard Zinfandel shows tobacco, and densely saturated blue fruits with hints of dusty mint. The palate offers spice box, apricot and concentrated black raspberry
