En Cavale Zinfandel North Coast 2022

Product Description

Superbly energetic natural Zinfandel from Contra Costa. Sunny cranberry, pomegranate fruit on the nose with flecks of clove and black pepper. Tangy and crunchy in the mouth, will leave you craving another glass. Serve with a slight chill. 

From producer: "Inspired by the California claret-style of 1970s/80s zinfandel, we picked these grapes in early September at roughly 24 brix. To bring out the spicy, peppery nature of the grape, we started with a spontaneous whole-cluster carbonic fermentation for roughly one week, followed by a gentle treading to break up the fruit and allow a cap to form on top of the juice. After another week of fermentation with a once-daily treading, the wine was pressed to neutral oak barrels to rest for five months before bottling in late February, 2020. Minimally protective sulfur (30ppm) was added approximately a month before bottling."
