Manzanita Creek 2009 Zinfandel, Addor Vyd., Mendocino
Item Number: 25 20 134 09
Manzanita Creek does it again!!! Started by two brothers who worked in construction. They decided they wanted to make wine and took a book out of the library. Well, they obviously are very good students because within two years they had a wine selected to the San Francisco Chronicle Top 100 and they produced the wine that was selected as our Wine Express California Wine of the Year!!!! This Zin is just as exciting as the award-winning Cloud Buster but in a very different style. Here grapes are sourced from a single vineyard in Medocino County. The Addor Vineyard has produced outstanding fruit for many decades and was planted over to Zin over ten years ago so the vines have had a chance to mature and bring fruit that is concentrated and complex. Aged oak barrels for 18 to 32 months in French oak, this is an uberrich Mendocino Zinfandel has wonderful berry-cherry fruit, black pepper and chocolate in the nose. Lush acidity and a long exhilarating finish. 96 points from Just Wine Points. Don't Miss It!
