Sledgehammer Zinfandel 2009
A new style of big Zin – bold and complex. Our winemaker took no prisoners with this Zin lovers weapon of choice. Dark, ripe fruit and surprising complexity make it wise beyond its years. When you take a sledgehammer to Zin grapes, you get intensely ripe and intense flavor that’s a hammer blow to your taste buds. Sledgehammer + ripe, dark Zinfandel grapes = Rich, full bodied flavor that will leave you begging for more.

Sledgehammer Zinfandel is excellent! It compares very well with some old-vine zinfandel's that I like -- and in fact, I ordered anther case after the first. A very good value.

Notes on the Sledgehammer Zinfandel 750ML 2009

Wine Maker Notes After being picked at full maturity, the fruit was fermented for 5 to 7 days prior to pressing, resulting in rich color and structured tannins. Following malolatic fermentation the wine was aged for two years in a combination of French and Hungarian oak barrels to add a touch of spice notes, while enabling the bright juicy fruit intensity of the vineyard to show through. Our winemaker added in small amounts of Petite Sirah (8%) for added depth of flavor.

Additional Notes The majority of grapes in this Zinfandel come from the Clear Mountain Vineyard in the Red Hills appellation of Lake County. Here red volcanic soils with high rock content (including large chunks of obsidian) combine with warm days and cool nights to provide excellent growing conditions for Zinfandel, yielding wines with rich and robust flavors.
