Vintage Notes

Edizione Pennino Zinfandel portrays the unique creation of Zinfandel using Morisoli and Werle clones grown on the Inglenook Estate in Rutherford, Napa Valley. 

The small canopy coupled with Inglenook’s dry farming practices put less stress on the vines which were optimized to develop fruit with complex aromatics and rich concentration. Inglenook’s Zinfandel is composed to be less aggressive with lower alcohol compared to many other Napa Valley Zinfandels.

Winemaker’s Tasting Notes

2015 Edizione Pennino Zinfandel boasts a fragrant nose of crushed ripe red cherries, violets, red licorice, clove, and rose petal. The palate is intensely saturated with deep, rich, tightly-woven flavors of macerated black raspberries, kirsch, allspice, and blackberry. Its velvety, sensuous texture extends from the mid palate clear through to the long and lavishly aromatic finish.
