Girard 2019 Old Vine Zinfandel Napa Valley
The special sauce for this phenomenal Zinfandel is the oak influence. Aged for 18 months in "Fusion Barrels" comprised of French, American, and Hungarian Oak. The unique spice and flavors that integrate into the juice provides a smooth yet complex finish and notable mouth feel.
Mr. Wonderful's Notes
Racy aromas of blackberry jam, cherry cobbler and spicy white pepper reveal on the nose. Plum, cherry, and dried herb flavors flood the palate, framed by a careful selection of Fusion barrel oak; savory notes imparted by the American oak, Hungarian oak elevates Zinfandels’ characteristic sweet spice, and the French oak affords the wine a smooth and luxurious finish.Taste
