95 Pts & Double Gold - 2016 San Francisco Int'l Wine Competition
90 Pts & Editor's Choice - Wine Enthusiast
The 2013 Mettler Zinfandel draws you in with its deep, opaque garnet color. Enticing aromas of dried red currant, brambly berries and toast delight the senses. An exceptional medley of flavors offers sweet cherry, dark chocolate and ripe berries, enriched by notes of tobacco, spice and sweet oak. The mouth-feel is lush and smooth with firm but silky tannins that linger through the finish. A light touch of acidity creates balance and elegance while retaining the juicy, exuberant personality that is uniquely Zinfandel. A variety of cuisines, from hearty stews to grilled favorites, will stand up nicely to this rich and flavorful wine.
