Wine Review: This dark red colored Zinfandel from the Alexander Valley was very popular with the Tasting Panel. It opens with mild smoky oak and black cherry bouquet. On the palate this wine is full bodied, balanced and flavorful. The flavor profile is a cola and sweet blueberry blend with hints of oak, dark chocolate, and black raspberry. The finish is dry and its flavors are nicely prolonged. The panel suggested pairing this tasty Zin with Irish lamb stew or roast pork. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: The 2013 La Storia Zinfandel was made mostly from Block 303 Zinfandel and Block 400 and 402 Petite Sirah. The wine is bright and lively with concentrated “Zini” aromas; predominant dark cherry, blueberry and plum and some of the typical raisin. The fine oak barrel aging brings in subtle aromas of vanilla, brown sugar and slight toast and smokiness. The mouth feel is solid, with medium body and very soft, elegant tannins that accentuate the wine’s long and juicy finish with lively acidity.
