"The 2013 Zinfandel Iron Hill Vineyard is slightly less powerful at 15.2% alcohol. Coming from hard volcanic soils, this wine was aged 16 months in about 30% new French oak and produced another relatively small cuvée of 206 cases from the steep hillsides of the Iron Hill Vineyard. Cohn compares this wine to a French Côte-Rôtie, and I can see the legitimacy in his analysis. The wine has a fragrance in the nose that almost gives the sense that there are some white grapes contributing to the floral notes in the bouquet. There aren't any, as this is 100% Zinfandel, but the color is not as dense as its predecessor. Still, the complexity and richness are endearing. This fleshy, medium to full-bodied wine displays loads of black raspberry, licorice and a touch of tapenade. This is a beauty and quite a complex offering for Zinfandel."
