2007 Acorn "Heritage Vines" Russian River Zinfandel
Powerful and full-bodied, offering blueberry aromas and flavors of rustic huckleberry, licorice and pepper. Drink now through 2014.
Acorn's Alegria vineyard's oldest blocks were planted in 1890, and the maturity of the vines shows in the intensity and depth of this wonderful Zinfandel. This is old style Zin--a field blend of 16 varietals harvested and co-fermented together. The wine leads with lively blackberry and raspberry notes sprinkled with black pepper and vanillin oak. From the smooth entry to the juicy, expansive finish, this Zin offers layers of seductive flavors that glide across the palate. Ripe blackberry, spicy pepper, and creamy mocha mingle with a touch of cocoa, vanilla, and cedar. 82% Zinfandel, 8% Alicante Bouschet, 8% Petite Sirah. The remaining 2% of the field blend includes Carignane, Trousseau, Sangiovese, Petit Bouschet, Negrette, Syrah, Plavac Mali, Tannat, Muscat Noir, Peloursin, Beclan, Cinsaut, and Grenache.
