Amista 2013 Zinfandel Gene's Block

Amista 2013 Zinfandel Gene's Block


Take me to current releases


Our 2013 Gene’s Block is another great example of Dry Creek Zinfandel. From the sweet blackberry pie notes to the hints of cassis, clove and black pepper, this wine is a knockout! The palate continues with flavors of blackberry, currant and hints of strawberry jam. This is definitely a big wine with big, juicy tannins, a rich, broad mouthfeel and a finish that lasts for days. I hate to play favorites, but I just love this wine!

Vineyard Notes
If 2012 was thought to be the perfect vintage, then 2013 really blew our minds. The year started out with a dry winter, but high spring rains added to the water table just in time. The summer was hot, but even without any major heat spikes. Harvest cam
Winemaker Notes
The Saini Vineyards Gene’s Block Zinfandel was harvested first thing in the morning by hand. The grapes were sorted once in the vineyard and once in the winery before being destemmed and left whole berry to go into an open top tank. The grapes were cold soaked for 5 days to extract the maximum amount of flavor, then inoculated and fermented on the skins for 12 days. After being gently pressed off the skins, the wine was moved to neutral oak barrels where it completed malolactic and was racked twice in the 18 months before being bottled.
