2018 Joel Gott Zinfandel California – Across California in 2018, the growing season was long and even, with moderate winter rains resulting in later than usual bud break. Warm spring temperatures were followed by a midsummer heat wave and cooler temperatures in the fall. These conditions allowed fruit to ripen evenly at a steady pace, making for a wellbalanced wine.
Following harvest, the fruit was fermented in individual lots then blended together to balance the characteristics of each grape growing region. The wine was aged in 20% new American oak and 80% 2-year-old French oak.
The 2018 Joel Gott California Zinfandel has aromas of raspberries, blackberries and dried cranberry with notes of vanilla and spice. The wine opens with dark fruit flavors and vanilla, followed by velvety tannins on the mid-palate, and a long finish with hints of spice.
