2012 Zinfandel De Loach Russian River Valley - California Red
The Russian River Valley Zinfandel is predominantly harvested from the younger vines of the Becnel Vineyard and the Slusser Vineyard, with smaller amounts of older vine Zinfandel from the Saitone and Boschetti ranches. The wine is made in a style that highlights the distinctive characteristics and unique flavor profiles our various Russian River Valley vineyards. The BCD Vineyard is one of the last to ripen and offers the final blend great acidity and a noticeable brambliness. The Becnel Vineyard offers intense red fruit characteristics while the Slusser Vineyard offers darker fruit flavors and high-toned aromatics. The grapes from the Saitone Ranch lend an intense dark spice to the wine while the fruit from the Boschetti Ranch provides dense tannins and a fuller body.
The 2012 vintage Russian River Valley Zinfandel opens with aromatically enticing notes of boysenberry and blackberry accented with a touch of dust and violet. Dark red, almost purplish in color, this wine is medium to full-bodied with excellent balance, pleasing acidity and great structure – hallmark characteristics of its Russian River Valley terroir.
