Zinfandel, Korte Ranch 2013

Elyse Winery

Deep garnet colored with generous aromas of raspberry, black plum, caramel, cinnamon, clove and orange zest. Smooth entry with a broad mouthfeel leading to bright and lively flavors of sweet blackberry, blueberry, cracked black pepper, cassis and hints of coffee, licorice and spice. Lush and lavishly textured this wine’s well integrated tannins and rich fruit make it very approachable and enjoyable now but if you manage to hold some back it will age nicely for another 5 – 10 years.

Reviews

  • "90 points. From a ranch planted many decades ago, this wine includes mixed blacks such as Grand Noir and Carignane, adding juicy red and black fruit to the mix. Smoke, cinnamon and leather highlights are kept firm by an integrated tannic structure." (Wine Enthusiast)
