2020 Living the Dream
Well, we finally did it - a desert-style wine! Our late harvest is made with Zinfandel from the old Azzevedo head-trained vineyard near Auburn, which sets at about 1300 feet elevation. After 2-years in a new Charlois American barrel, it has wonderful aromas of blackberry, clove, and cinnamon. Follow that up with flavors of blackberry, raspberry, and subtle notes of anise, cocoa powder, and soy. The mouthfeel is velvety smooth and balanced, with a lingering finish that begs for another sip.
