Paul Maroon started his small winery in Napa Valley with the purchase of a beautiful estate vineyard near Howell Mountain, located in the new Coombsville AVA. The grapes for this Zin are grown on 50 year old vines in Napa Valley’s Chiles Valley AVA. Only 502 cases were produced of this zesty, big-boned Zin. Aged in Hungarian oak barrels the wine shows blackberries, cloves, cocoa and black pepper. It’s full bodied with the structure to age but it’s also has a silky texture that make extremely easy to enjoy right now.
