The Merlo 2013 Zinfandel benefits from the Hyampom Valley’s long growing season (usually a full 3 to 4 weeks longer than that of Napa or Sonoma), which allows for slower, more even fruit ripening and the creating of full, concentrated flavors. Deep garnet in color, the 2013 Zinfandel presents aromas of spice, cedar, briar and ripe plummy fruit. On the palate, dark cherry fruit flavors are in balance with warm oak overtones and supported by soft tannins.
