Husch Old Vines Zinfandel 2008
Variety: Old Vines Zinfandel
Old, gnarly, head-pruned vines grown at La Ribera Vineyards provide the backbone and structure of the Husch 2008 Zinfandel. Because Zinfandel fermentations are notoriously challenging, we fermented the wine in a small tank where we carefully controlled the temperature. Once the primary fermentation was complete we transferred the wine to barrels for malolactic fermentation and nine months of French and American oak aging. Look for blackberry, plum and currant fruit flavors with nuances of leather and vanilla. This food-friendly Zinfandel pairs nicely with tomato-based pastas.
