2007 Beatty Ranch Zinfandel
Howell Mountain - Napa Valley
2007 was an incredible year for this mountain vineyard. The vines produced small berries with thicker skins and the long dry harvest allowed optimal hang-time allowing the fruit to fully ripen to desired flavors. Our 2007 Beatty Ranch Zinfandel is again a well-balanced zinfandel with blackberry and black cherry cola fruit which is common for this site. The wine hints of white flowers and spice on the palate with a long finish supported by hints of vanilla and asian spices. Enjoy this wine with spicy meats and barbeque foods over the next 5-6 years.
