2019 Sin Zin

Sold Out

New vintage of an old favorite!

Sin Zin has been charming wine drinkers since our first vintage in 1978.  Our 42nd vintage continues that tradition.
Although the weather was a bit cooler than usual early in the 2019 growing season, there were no unusual temperature swings during bud break of flowering.  The moderate temperatures continued through the summer, allowing the grapes to mature gradually.  After 2018's record setting crop size, 2019 swung back to an average yield.  This vintage is a blend of 6 Zinfandel lots, each lot was de-stemmed, fermented separately, and then aged in 25% new American oak barrels for 12 months.
This vintage shows great color, enticing aromas and big flavors.  In the glass there are loads of spicy, fruity aromas of dark fruits, blackberry, strawberry, plum and black pepper and a hint of vanilla.
Sin Zin is a widely recognized California classic with rich spicy flavors of black cherry, strawberry, plum, apricot, black pepper, chocolate and slight violet notes.  This is a luscious layered wine with great balance and a nice smooth finish.
