WINEMAKER'S NOTES
 

A plush wine, our 2012 Gold Crest Zinfandel begins with an eclectic, expressive nose of cherry cola and dusty blackberries. As you sip the wine, flavors of dark chocolate and red plum skin pace smoothly from front to back. Benefitting from 35% new French oak during aging, this satisfying wine finishes with spicy notes and soft texture. Enjoyable upon release, this wine will evolve nicely over the next five years. – Joe Shebl, Winemaker

VINTAGE NOTE
 

This vintage had more of a normal weather pattern. Unlike 2010 and 2011, the harvest proceeded without any significant rainfall. There had been fears of another short harvest due to cool weather in the critical months of April and May when bud development for the next year occurs. We need not have worried as a healthy crop was forthcoming. There was plenty of heat to ripen the 2012 crop and a long season to get everything picked at its optimal prime and through fermentation. Overall, the vintage expectation is for wines with robust flavor concentration.
