This rich and full-bodied Zinfandel is graced with an elegant structure and richly nuanced flavours of blackberries and ripe cherries. A subtle waft of roasted coffee beans and lightly toasted almonds entwines with soft raspberries in a luxuriously long and persistent finish. This food-friendly wine pairs beautifully with a wide array of dishes, such as sausage pizza, grilled shish-kabobs or roasted rack of lamb.
For the third year in a row, Napa Valley experienced an exceptional vintage, aided by neardrought conditions. The yield was smaller than 2013, due to drought and a warmer growing season. July's relatively low temperatures, coupled with high relative humidity, slowed down sugar accumulation to achieve perfect ripeness with lower alcohol. Harvest started and ended about two weeks earlier than normal, producing superb quality.

The 2014 Grgich Hills Estate Zinfandel is an impeccable wine. This wine is rich, yet shows a bit of the "claret" style that is not always present in the marketplace. Its aromas and flavors of blackberries, earth, and shading of oak should pair well with a roasted leg of lamb.See detailed press review
