2013 Witchery Howell Mountain Zinfandel

Estate: Witchery Wines

Region: Howell Mountain, Napa Valley, California, United States of America


Tasting Note:February 3, 2016

Let's start by saying we were very impressed with this wine, and it is said to think that this is the only vintage Witchery will be making. The wine was insanely dark, almost black. Love the complexity that this nose carries. Starting off with baking spices and cinnamon, coupled with some sweet dark berry jam and finishing off with some mesquite smoked and maple wood. Moderate plus tannins (7/10), with a moderate body. Great structure and weight to the body. This does not finish like a typical Zinfandel, it starts off jammy on the palate and goes slightly savory before going dry in the moderate plus finish. and goes dry in the finish. and moderate plus finish. Very happy that we have two more of these!
