Croix Estate 1904 Estate Zinfandel 2018
|Region||California, Sonoma County, Russian River Valley|
The 2018 Zinfandel 1904 comes from the Russian River and is 90% Zinfandel and 10% Alicante Bouchet, all from the Croix Estate Vineyard, that spent 16 months in 50% new French oak. Deeply colored, with a rocking bouquet of ripe black fruits, cigar tobacco, lead pencil, chocolate, and peppery herbs, it hits the palate with medium to full-bodied richness, beautiful purity of fruit, good acidity, and a great finish. A stunning, concentrated, balanced Zinfandel that does everything right, it's a big step up over the 2017 and will shine for at least 7-8 years.
