2017 Kuleto Estate Zinfandel, Napa Valley
Our 2017 Zinfandel is a classic old world style; loaded with spiced aromas of clove and cumin. As the nose opens up hints of dark plum and black currant emerge. The palate is dominated by black olive and jalapeño with a black cherry after taste.
Vintage 2017 gave us yet another beautiful vintage in the Napa Valley. This following the fabulous vintages of 2012-2016. Marked by a few late-season heat spells (and the late season fires), the wines are as opulent as the 2012s, with the elegance of the 2015s.
