On Sale

HARVEST MOON Late Harvest Zinfandel

Complementary ground shipping on 4 or more bottles * USE CODE VINO4. Note these are half bottles (375ml)

WHY WE LOVE IT:

  • Less sweet, but excellent balance for the red dessert wine lover
  • Estate grown grapes exhibiting sweet tart enjoyment
  • Small, artisan producer committed to sustainability on the family farm

WINEMAKER: Randy Pitts, a grapegrower and winemaker on the family vineyard for decades. He calls himself a 'wine shepherd." We call him just plain awesome.


WHAT WE TASTED:  An exotic, lightly sweet dessert wine with hard core pomegranate and mouth puckering raspberry. Wait for the hint of pepper mid palate then enjoy a non syrupy slightly sweet lingering finish. Can cellar 8-10 years  


AVA DESIGNATED: Russian River AVA, Sonoma


WHAT WE PAIRED:

  • Chocolate!
  • New York Cheesecake topped with berries

  •  Apple pie or fruit tarts

PERSONALITY:  Randy practices on-time harvesting--a once common winegrowing approach that picks the grapes earlier rather than later keeping berry structure intact. Future wine tastes juicy with lower sugar! 


TECHNICAL: 

  • Lower sugar, 13.5% alcohol
  • Light oak treatment
  • only 200 cases made

*Ground shipping in states where allowed. Temperature control shipping in effect May 15 through Sept 15 to protect these fine wines. A small fee will be added to each shipment. You may choose 2 day or overnight air also*

Regular price $37.00
