2017 Girard Old Vine Zinfandel Napa Valley
Sourced from select vineyards, including Morgan vineyard in the southeastern area of Napa Valley where the cooler climate affords grapes brisk acidity and bright fruit flavors. Another key source, Godward vineyard in Calistoga, is planted with older vines, and adds deep wells of flavor and polished character to our Old Vine Zinfandel. Bold aromas of juicy blackberry, raspberry and pepper leap from the glass, laced with baking spice and floral aromas. The palate showcases elegant black cherry and flavors and the finish is reveals savory barrel toast notes thanks to the American oak, while the Hungarian oak elevates Zinfandels’ characteristic sweet spice, and affords the wine a smooth and luxurious finish.
