Sin Zin had been a classic at Alexander Valley Vineyards for over 39 years!

Overall, 2016 was a more normal growing season than the last few years.  While the drought was far from over, we received much needed rain over the winter and early spring.  The good weather continued through the summer with no damaging heat spikes.  Harvest started and ended early, yields were reduced a little, but the quality and flavor of the grapes were stellar.  

Harvest occurred from September 3 - 28, 2016. The 2016 is 100% Zinfandel that was aged for 14 months in American oak barrels.  This wine has great color, with a dark purple, red hue.  There are spicy, earthy aromas of dark fruits, black cherry, black pepper, plum, raspberry, oak and vanilla.

This is big wine with a full rich mouthfeel and earthy, spicy flavors of black cherry, plum, black pepper, apricot and chocolate.  The spicy finish really comes through as the wine sits in the glass with additional nuances of brown sugar and warm spices.

There are never many 3L bottles of Sin Zin.  Buy it while you can!
