The 2017 La Storia Block 303 Zinfandel is full-bodied, hefty wine. This wine offers powerful aromas and flavors of ripe berries, oak, and licorice. Enjoy it with beef kabobs. (Tasted: March 11, 2020, San Francisco, CA)
The wine is bright and lively with concentrated “Zin” aromas of dark cherry, blueberry and plums and some of the typical raisins aromas. The fine oak barrel aging brings in subtle aromas of vanilla, maple, cinnamon, and slight toast and smokiness. The mouthfeel is solid, with medium to full body and very soft and elegant tannins that accentuate the wine’s long and juicy finish with lively acidity. Zinfandels, when balanced are very versatile food pairing wines with a broad range and this wine, will satisfy your palate with many of your favorite dishes.
Blend: 87% Zinfandel, 11% Petite Sirah, 2% Montepulciano
