2010 Enchantment Late Harvest Zinfandel
96% Zinfandel 4% Petite Sirah
This fruit was picked in the middle of November at 30 brix. We stopped fermentation with 3% sugar remaining and fortified the wine immediately. After pressing, the wine was gently racked into barrel where aged for 2 ½ years. Late harvest Zinfandel has the power to warm the soul on cold evenings or rainy days. Aromas of caramel, raspberry and sweet lavender are released with each swirl in the glass. Herbaceous red fruit and chocolate kick off the flavor profile and are supported with a nice raspberry mid palate that fades to lengthy finish dominated by oak, cinnamon, and maple flavors beneath the beautiful dried fruit. Enchantment is a great companion for dessert or even incredibly spicy Chinese!
