James Suckling once said, “One of the most fascinating attributes of zinfandel from California is that many are made from very old vines – some more than a century old. In other words, you are often drinking history when you open a bottle.”~ James Suckling.
With today’s offer, the 2013 Cerro Zinfandel Napa Valley, you’re not only going to be tasting history in a bottle, but also expertise, and amazing quality.
This 100% Zin is a unique and fascinating wine.50% of the vines are sourced from a block of Italian Primitivo clones, and the other 50% comes from Old Vine Zin - one of the original immigrant vines planted in California. All the grapes are sourced from the Chiles Valley District (northeast of Rutherford,) a subregion within Napa Valley AVA where some of Napa's oldest Zin vines are found. There is no better way to gauge the classic character of old vine Zinfandel in California than through this 9 years young wine.
If there’s a man in California that all we, wine geeks and lovers, should know about is Derek Beitler, who happens to be the nephew of Caymus cofounder, Chuck Wagner. Derek's expertise started as a college student when he spent his summers working at Caymus.Today, he is a rising star in Napa, and this Zin is the perfect proof of that.
