(2011 Vintage) The La Storia Zinfandel was made mostly from Block 303 Zinfandel and Block 400 and 402 Petite Sirah. The wine is bright and lively with concentrated “Zini” aromas; predominant dark cherry, blueberry and plum and some of the typical raisin. The fine oak barrel aging brings in subtle aromas of vanilla, brown sugar and slight toast and smokiness. The mouth feel is solid, with medium body and very soft, elegant tannins that accentuate the wine’s long and juicy finish with lively acidity.
