Lava Cap Zinfandel 2011
Lava Cap is regarded as one of the premier Zinfandel producers in the Sierra Foothills. The estate grapes are handpicked at their peak of ripeness, yielding fruit with clean, soft pulp, brown seeds (indicative of gentle tannins), and pure fresh flavors. Aged 20 months in American and French oak barrels.
The Lava Cap Zinfandel 2011 enters with subtle notes of briar and spice which quickly give way to aromas of raspberry liqueur. This robust Zinfandel offers layers of blackberry and black cherry fruit. A warm, luscious finish lingers on with sweet vanilla oak flavors. Delicious!
