The Brutocao Cellars 2013 ‘Über Zin’ Zinfandel was produced from the family’s Bliss Vineyard in Mendocino County. The Bliss Vineyard is the original vineyard property that was purchased by the Brutocao brothers’ grandfather, Irv Bliss, in 1943 and it lends fruit to many of Brutocao Cellars’ wines. A blend of 80% Zinfandel, 10% Primitivo, and 10% blend of Petite Sirah, Barbera, and Carignane, the 2013 Über Zin is the perfect example of combining old world winemaking with new world techniques. The result is a wine that has both depth and luscious fruit flavors. This well-balanced Zinfandel has aromas of dried cherries, mocha and tobacco, followed by flavors of blackberry jam, pepper, and hints of chocolate that linger on the soft finish.
