2008 Beatty Ranch Zinfandel
Howell Mountain - Napa Valley
Our 2008 Beatty Ranch Zinfandel wine is truly old vine, Howell Mountain Zinfandel from one of the few vineyards in this region that survived prohibition and is still producing. Our 2008 Beatty Ranch Zinfandel is a well-balanced wine 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.

Accolades & Awards
"Fresh raspberry, blackberry, cherry and cola aromas, with pepper spice, chocolate and hints of oak. Full-bodied, bold, spicy fruit in a well-balanced lingering finish. Not terribly varietal but a very tasty wine."
