HARVEST MOON Late Harvest Zinfandel
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:
New York Cheesecake topped with berries Apple pie or fruit tarts
- Truffle and Parmesan risotto
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!
- Lower sugar, 13.5% alcohol
- Light oak treatment
- only 200 cases made
