Wine of the Week
2013 Neal Family "Rutherford Dust Vineyards" Zinfandel
Napa Valley, California
The 2013 Zinfandel has a beautiful varietal character with aromas of floral and fruit notes to complement the richness created by aging in large Hungarian oak barrels. Intense cherry, blackberry, licorice and citrus blossom aromas combine to make an attractive, inviting bouquet. Hints of blakc tea, molasses and sweet spice beautifully accent the berry flavors. The balance of tannin and acifity create a firm, structured and long finish that shows a touch of Zinfandel's white pepper-like identity. Perfectly paired alongside the classic Steak Frites, tender Flat Iron Steak, or Hawaiian BBQ Flatbread - this is a glass you don't want to miss!
