2016 Mettler Family Vineyards Zinfandel
The 2013 Mettler Zinfandel was grown from sustainable and organically farmed vineyards. It draws you in with its deep, opaque garnet color. Enticing aromas of dried red currant, brambly blackberry and vanilla delight the senses. An impressive concentration of flavors offer waves of sweet raspberry, blackberry and boysenberry pie, enriched by notes of sweet tobacco, pepper and hints of cola. Silky, plush tannins float through the lingering finish, balanced by light touch of acidity. This wine has the elegance and balance of a fine Cabernet, yet retains the juicy, exuberant personality that is uniquely Zinfandel. A variety of cuisines, from hearty stews to grilled favorites, will stand up nicely to this rich and flavorful Zinfandel.
