The Madroña 2013 Four Blocks Zinfandel showcases a pure expression of high-elevation mountain Zin in El Dorado County. This Zinfandel is a blend of four vineyards - Enye and Sumu Kaw Vineyards in Pleasant Valley (at 2,850 feet and 3,000 feet elevation respectively), and Madroña’s Estate and Cardanini Vineyards in Camino (both just under 3,000 feet).

Supple, full-bodied, and dense, the Madroña 2013 Four Blocks Zinfandel offers intense, brooding aromas of blackberry, bramble fruit, cedar spice, and blueberry. The palate is lush with bold cherry fruit, wild blackberry, and raspberry flavors enveloped in a smooth, rich texture and well-structured tannins. Madroña’s Zinfandel is both balanced and serious at the same time, showing excellent varietal character.
