Tasting Notes and Description

The Shannon Ridge High Elevation Zinfandel is a bold and expressive red wine that reflects the rugged beauty and unique terroir of Lake County, California. Crafted by Shannon Ridge, a winery known for its commitment to sustainable farming and the use of sheep to naturally maintain the vineyards, this Zinfandel epitomizes the winery's dedication to environmental stewardship and quality winemaking. Sourced from vineyards situated at high elevations, this Zinfandel benefits from the diurnal temperature shifts that contribute to the development of complex flavors and balanced acidity in the grapes. The challenging mountainous terrain and the volcanic soils of the region add distinctive mineral notes and depth to the wine, making the Shannon Ridge High Elevation Zinfandel a true expression of its origin.

Upon tasting, the Shannon Ridge High Elevation Zinfandel reveals a rich tapestry of dark fruit flavors, including blackberry, plum, and hints of ripe cherry, layered with spicy nuances of black pepper and clove. The oak aging process lends subtle notes of vanilla and toast, adding complexity and warmth to the wine's overall profile. This full-bodied Zinfandel boasts a robust structure and smooth tannins, leading to a lingering finish that invites another sip. Its intensity and depth make it an excellent pairing with hearty dishes such as barbecued meats, smoked ribs, and rich pasta dishes with meaty sauces. It also complements bold cheeses and savory vegetarian options, making it a versatile choice for a variety of culinary experiences. The Shannon Ridge High Elevation Zinfandel is not just a wine; it's a celebration of Lake County's winemaking potential and Shannon Ridge's passion for producing wines that are as authentic and spirited as the land itself.
