2017 SIN ZIN

Retail Price: $20.00

Sin Zin is a California classic!

In 1978 Hank Wetzel produced our first vintage of Sin Zin and wine drinkers fell in love with the elegant, balanced flavors of Zinfandel from the Alexander Valley.  Forty years later, Sin Zin is still charming fans with balance, elegance and rich spicy flavors.  

Overall, 2017 was a vintage of contrasts. The ample rainfall in January and February allayed any talk of drought, but winter rains were followed by a warm spring and heat spikes throughout the summer. For the 2017 vintage, we harvested Zinfandel from eight vineyards in the southern Alexander Valley. Each lot was de-stemmed, fermented separately, and then aged in 25% new American oak barrels for 14 months. 

This vintage shows great color, with a dark purple, red hue. There are spicy, earthy aromas of dark fruits, black cherry, black pepper, plum, and raspberry along with a touch of citrus.  
 
This 2017 is a rich Zinfandel with flavors of black cherry, plum, black pepper, apricot and chocolate. The spicy finish really comes through as the wine sits in the glass, along with nuances of brown sugar and warm spices. This vintage has a nice, clean finish.
