2011 Painter Bridge Zinfandel

VINTAGE
Like many works of art, the 2011 Painter Bridge Zinfandel was designed with an eye towards good composition. The fruit for this wine comes from four Paso Robles Zinfandel blocks and is blended with a wonderfully soft and spicy Petite Sirah, which offers body and palate structure. Each lot of Zinfandel was fermented separately, extracting the nuances of the individual vineyard blocks and drawing out a supple texture. Painter Bridge Zinfandel is awash with the gorgeous red fruit characters of the Zinfandel grape, and has been stylized to accent the delicate fruit without overpowering it with too much oak.

Enjoy in its youth, or lay down for up to five years

WINEMAKER'S COMMENTS
This 2011 Painter Bridge Zinfandel shows great color with a youthful red hue. The aromas are of ripe, brambly loganberry fruit with raspberry confection, black tea, vanilla and dark chocolate. The palate delivers crisp, red fruit with good volume and roundness, along with that unique peppery quality that zinfandel is known for.
-Steve Peck, Red Winemaker
