From 50-60 year old vine Zin vineyards near Calpella in northern Mendocino County. This straight-forward, ripe red berry and plum fruit and background peppery and minty spice style is easy to like. While being on the lighter side of Zinfandel, it does not let down in flavor and satisfaction. Medium/light tannins, perky acidity, the fruit, herb and spice flavors in unison. This is very impressive and a solid choice for $25.
I suggest you contact Hawley Winery to buy this as it is not on its website as of March 10, 2019, nor is it listed on winesearcher on this same date. Winemaker Austin Hawley poured it for me at an industry tasting, so it is definitely on the market. You will be rewarded for searching it out.Add to my favorites
