The 2019 Wheelhouse Zinfandel is bursting with fruit aromas of vine ripe strawberries, bing cherries, and red plums that scream Paso Zinfandel. Furthermore, hints of cocoa powder and fresh vanilla bean add layers and depth to the aroma.
Raspberry like acidity on the front palate leads to a silky, cherry cola essenced mid palate. Finally, the oak shines through on the finish leaving you with a pleasant toasty vanilla aftertaste that will bring you back for more!
For our 2019 Wheelhouse Zinfandel, we handpicked Zinfandel, Syrah and Petite Sirah from our estate RBZ Vineyard.
We separately fermented each varietal in stainless steel before aging in French oak. The use of 25% new French oak allows the naturally fruity aromas of Zinfandel to shine, while bringing in light hints of oaky spice. A splash of Syrah and Petite Sirah are blended in before bottling to build tannin, structure, and bring a bit more depth to the finish.Sirah are blended in before bottling to build tannin, structure, and bring a bit more depth to the finish.
