Tasting Notes

Our 2013 De Liese Cellars Zinfandel underwent an even and extended maturation period that allowed for the outstanding flavor development so apparent in this beautifully balanced and structured wine. The aromas of briary wild blackberry, raspberry and strawberry continue in the mouth with subtle notes of brown sugar, cocoa and caramel. Inclusion of Cabernet Sauvignon and Petite Sirah varietals in the blend adds refinement, depth, spicy and earthy notes.

Production Notes

Varietal: 87% Zinfandel; 8% Cabernet Sauvignon; 5% Petite Syrah

Winemaker Notes

After harvesting in late October, fruit for the De Liese Zinfandel fermented in stainless steel. Once fermentation was complete, our Zinfandel was barrel aged in French and American oak barrels for eighteen (18) months, 30% of which are new, adding complexity to the bright fruit qualities of this wine. The wine is racked twice during barrel aging and sterile filtered just prior to bottling.
