2014 Peter Franus Zinfandel Brandlin Vineyard Mt. Veeder

$44.95

NEW! Head-trained, dry-farmed, these are likely the oldest vines of any kind on Mount Veeder, planted in the 1920s. Peter Franus says, “The vineyard is in a magnificent and magical setting where you can truly feel the energy that ultimately finds its way into the wine.” Is there a better Zinfandel Vineyard in the Napa Valley? Probably not. This wine just pulses with red fruit DRAGON ENERGY, made in a balanced, claret style. Wild fennel, raspberry jam, poached dried cherries, and baking spice make this totally irresistible. You need at least a bottle or two in your mixed case!

Baked earth, mocha and vanilla characterize this field blend of 90% Zinfandel with a rough mix of 10% Mourvèdre, Charbono and Carignan. Robust on the palate with a textured mouthfeel, it's full-bodied with bright, underlying acidity and black peppery finish
