About Napa Cellars 2016 Zinfandel, Napa Valley

Started by Rombauer back in the 80's Napa Cellars is now owned by the Trinchero Family Estate. As a result they are able to source premium Napa fruit from their almost 300 acres of estate vineyards in Napa Valley. That's really what makes this wine stand out and why it's so good. Zinfandel used to be much more widely planted in Napa Valley, today it only totals roughly 2% of total acreage but there are still some prime blocks, so grapes for this Zin are carefully hand-selected from vineyards in St. Helena, Yountville, Oak Knoll and Calistoga where they've located complex and concentrated fruit. After a three day cold soak, designed to extract color from the skins, the grapes are pressed early to avoid extracting harsh tannins. A blend of 86% Zinfandel and 14% Petite Sirah, following a maceration period lasting from 7 to 15 days, the lots are aged in 42% new French and American oak barrels for 19 months.

A Gold Medal Winner in the Houston Rodeo Wine Competition this Zin shows bright aromas of fresh blackberry, anise, bits of clove, cassis,spicy black pepper and saffron. On the palate, intense brambly fruit, figs, dark toasty notes, vanilla and cocoa are threaded with hints of cedar. This wine is weighty and juicy with balanced acidity accenting soft and supple tannins.
