Jammy raspberry nose with vanilla. Plum and black olive on the palate, round tannins and lingering finish. JO (12/20)
The crop at this hillside vineyard ripened slowly and evenly throughout August. Each of the eight parcels was picked at optimum maturity in mid-September. We included five of the eight to make a rich, intense Boatman Zinfandel. Twelve months aging in American oak adds spice and complements the wine’s abundant red fruit. Enjoyable now, this sumptuous zinfandel will evolve over a seven-to-eight year period.
