2014 Foley Sonoma Estate East Block Zinfandel, Alexander Valley
Opulent and fruit-forward, our 2014 Estate East Block Zinfandel is most certainly a New World style Zinfandel. Planted 16 years ago, the East Block is our only Zinfandel block that is trellised, as opposed to head trained. Picking up even sunlight during the day, this block generally produces powerhouse Zins, with highly pigmented skins and fully ripened fruit. On the nose, dark plum, rich boysenberry, and strawberry jam qualities are abundant. The palate boasts bright flavors of ripe strawberry and raspberry with a lush, full bodied finish.
Food Pairing Notes
This Zinfandel pairs well with barbeque pork ribs, or a zesty skirt steak for a perfect spring or summer meal.
