Fifth Moon Zinfandel 2021
The grapes were picked at 19 Brix for a brighter, fresher take on Zinfandel, a contrast to the classic Lodi Zinfandel characteristics of jammy overripe fruit and oak. The wine packs a wallop of fresh, red fruit aromatics and flavors– think strawberries, raspberries, and Rainier cherries, layered with black pepper, star anise, wet river rock, spiced plum, and hoisin. The complex flavors are delightfully balanced by great acidity and a crunchy mineral finish.
