2013 Zinfandel, Sonoma County
The Corner 103 2013 Founders Reserve Sonoma County Zinfandel is a blend of Zinfandels from the nest regions in Sonoma County (Sonoma Valley, Sonoma Carneros and Dry Creek Valley). The wine is primarily Zinfandel with a small amount of Petite Sirah and Syrah blended in for structure and complexity. The nose of this wine explodes with crushed black fruit (blackberry, dark cherries and black currents) followed by crushed black pepper and sweet oak. The mouth is burst of ripe cherries, blackberries, plum and licorice root that nishes soft yet structured. This wine has enough tannins to balance the sweet fruit and will allow it to age for years to come.
