Murder Ridge Zinfandel 2014, Perli Vineyard
Murder Ridge is in Mendocino and named for a real murder occurring over 100 years ago. The strange story appealed to owners Leslie Sisneros (winemaker) and Steve Alden (grower) and a partnership developed. We have long appreciated Leslie’s winemaking style and Steve fruit from Perli vineyards (Edmeades, Drew Family, Donelan), and now we have the opportunity to offer this great wine to you.
The Murder Ridge Zinfandel 2014, Perli Vineyard is a complex, elegant wine showcasing the quintessential characteristics of violet and rose petal aromas inherent in most wine from Perli Vineyards. Intense flavors of stone fruits and raspberry are interwoven with layers of sweet tannins, allspice and black pepper. A smooth full bodied palate integrates the high elevation crisp acidic core with bold, fruit forward notes. Don’t wait – only 70 cases made!
