Chase Zinfandel 2016, Hayne Vineyard
In the heart of Saint Helena, the historic Hayne Vineyard is home to 112-year old heritage Zinfandel vines, and the source of some of the most highly rated Zinfandel in California. Like living works of art, each of these old vines is a unique spirit unto itself. These old vines have incredible, almost mysterious qualities — like their ability to preserve beautiful, mouthwatering acidity even with extended hang times. They can achieve ripe, concentrated berries that produce powerful and complex wines without ever compromising balance, or that luminous purity of fruit. So satisfying in every way, the Chase Hayne Vineyard Zinfandel 2016 is a wine you can drink the whole night through and still wonder how the end of the glass keeps coming so quickly. Pure, decadent fruit expression shines with the support of ripe, integrated tannins and gorgeous, balanced acidity. Dark red fruits hang long on the palate with a finish that practically begs for the next sip. 94 pts, Robert Parker. 510 cases produced.
