Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The Napa Cellars 2014 Zinfandel boasts bright aromas of fresh blackberries, tart cherry and hints of rose petal. The aromas lead to lush flavors of ripe jam with notes of mocha, spice, subtle pepper and sweet notes of oak on the finish. This wine is medium-bodied with bright acidity and a smooth, juicy and lasting mouthfeel. Winemaker Joe Shirley recommends pairing this wine with chicken cacciatore or a well-seasoned steak topped with fresh basil.
Vineyard Notes
Grapes for the Napa Cellars 2014 Zinfandel are hand-selected from vineyards in the warmer areas of Napa Valley, including St. Helena, Yountville, Oak Knoll and Calistoga. Zinfandel grows best in warmer climates and sourcing grapes from these areas results in complex and concentrated fruit. Zinfandel is not nearly as ubiquitous as Cabernet Sauvignon in Napa Valley and makes up roughly 2% of total acreage.
Production Notes
After a three day cold soak, designed to extract color from the skins, the grapes are pressed early to avoid extracting harsh tannins. Following a maceration period lasting from 7-13 days, the lots are aged in 34% new French and American oak barrels for 19 months. The partial use of new oak helps preserve the big Zinfandel flavors while still imparting warm, spicy characteristics to create an elegant and balanced wine.
