2015 Zinfandel

Our “village” Zinfandel, tapping into vineyard sources across the Paso Robles AVA including Thacher Winery’s own Kentucky Ranch vineyard. This is a great representation of Westside Paso Zin, and many of the vineyards contributing to the blend harken back to “old school” California viticulture practices, being both head trained and dry farmed. Spicy plum and dark berry notes, with classic Zin pepper notes. Drink thru 2021.

Youthful purple color. Ripe cherry and blueberry aromas are complemented by suggestions of vanilla and cola. Woodsmoke and star anise qualities emerge as the wine opens up and complement sweet black/blue fruit flavors that become sweeter on the back half. Shows excellent clarity and powerful thrust on the long, juicy finish, which features rounded tannins and a lingering blue fruit quality.
