Gallo Signature Series Zinfandel 2013
|Region||California, Sonoma County, Dry Creek Valley|
|Brand||Gallo Signature Series|
Originally planted in the late 1800s, our family's Stefani Vineyard is located in northeast Dry Creek Valley near the Alexander Valley's western border. Surrounded by hills and ridges that limit fog intrusion, the intense sunlight at Stefani Vineyard makes the average temperature about two to three degrees warmer than nearby vineyards, creating riper fruit characteristics in the grapes. The vines are planted on coveted hillside locations, where the gravelly clay loam soil is shallow and well-drained, allowing for less vigorous growth and well-balanced vines.
A zesty and appealingly briary Zinfandel, offering focus and power. Aromas of blackberry and licorice combine with ripe flavors of black raspberry, cracked pepper and toasted sage. Drink now through 2022. 400 cases made.
