Heitz Cellar Ink Grade Zinfandel 2009
Our Ink Grade Vineyard is perfectly suited to growing Zinfandel. On a rocky shale ridge, we designed terraced blocks which provide maximum sun exposure to nurture the fruit to full maturity. Flavors of strawberry and raspberry jam are spiced up by hints of black pepper and anise - classic characteristics of the varietal. Medium in body, this is a balanced wine that finishes with well-integrated oak - adding just a dash of vanilla flavor. This incredibly versatile wine pairs well with a wide variety of cuisines and occasions.
