Amista 2015 Zinfandel Gene's Block

Blackberry preserves and a touch of cherry pie start off on this wine. There are notes of black pepper and a touch of sandalwood on the nose. The palate is big and juicy and lingering flavors of strawberry go from start to finish on this wine. Juicy tannins are definitely present and are extremely well balanced with the fruit tones and a touch of acidity on the finish.

Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
2015 was a very dry year here in Sonoma County. Yields were down because the vines were stressed due to a shortage of water but flavors were concentrated with the smaller crop size.
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.
