This year was championed as one of the best vintages for the decade, and our 2012 Zinfandel certainly turned out and remains stunning. This Zinfandel especially portrays the unique soil and climate character of Steinbeck Vineyards, which shows the aroma of our vineyard in the dusty heat of the sun, but also contains the ozone rich ambiance just after the rains start. It has lifted and perfumed aromatics of plum, cherry, rose petal, and caramelized almonds. The palate has impeccable balance of fruit weight and acidity, with a driving flavor that builds towards the finish, loaded with complex spice and red fruit. The age has softened the tannins into a silky-smooth palate, but still holds some structure on the late palate. A drawn-out finish carries flavors of crunchy red plums, red currants, and wild cherries with subtle dark spices. This wine would pair well with a flavorsome meat like duck, quail, lamb, or beef ribs. For a vegetarian option this Zinfandel would be great with a dish of sautéed mixed mushrooms in dark soy/mushroom gravy.
