Lolita Ranch Zinfandel 2013



Growing Year Info

The 2013 growing year was the second dry year in a row Sonoma County. It was an especially dry spring and it warmed up early, so the vines got an early jump on the season. Bloom came along in early May and the temperatures were perfect for berry pollination. The clusters ended up setting an abundance of berries. We had to do quite a bit of cluster thinning to maintain our desired crop levels and to get some sunlight and air movement into the canopy. Harvest came early as well. Fortunately, we had cooler temps about midway through, which slowed down picking and allowed us to catch up on things - including sleep! Harvest was complete after 7-8 weeks.

Tasting Notes

The 2013 Lolita Ranch Zinfandel has an exotic nose of black currants, spice box, anise, and ripe blackberry. The palate is bright and focused with flavors of lychee, wild berry and cocoa powder.
