2017 Retro Zinfandel Chiles ValleyUdsolgt
Tasting Notes: Our Zinfandel is well-balanced in style, with clean acidity and bright fruit. Mike’s use of mostly neutral barrels lets the old vine fruit shine through. The TA (total acidity) at harvest was 6.9, extremely high, yielding a Zinfandel fresh and lively on the palate.
Zinfandel is a new wine in this range and is made from fruit sourced in Chiles Valley. Super-ripe red cherry, plum, new leather, spice and tobacco are all amped up. Rich and succulent, with plenty of buffering acidity, the Retro Zinfandel is beautiful and inviting.
