2016 Mancini Ranch Zinfandel

36.00

From the most privileged sections of Mancini Ranch, what Luca Mancini called “Mount Olivet”.  Roughly 85% Zinfandel, 15% mixed varieties. 

The wine was fermented whole-berry (100% destemmed), then allowed to age for 22 months in large neutral oak puncheons. 

Tasting Note:  Medium ruby garnet, with a nose of black cherry, raspberry, blackcurrant, rose petal, anise, and an abundance of Provencal spice-notes.  On the palate, there is a brambly fruit quality that I find characteristic to the Zinfandels of the Piner-Olivet neighborhood, along with notes of pomegranate, plums, and black currant.  The wine is intense and full-bodied with fresh acidity and fine-grained tannins. Very much ready to drink even though it is quite young!
