Aida Estate · Late Harvest Zinfandel ·
Our “Modified Solera” style blending program for our Late Harvest Zinfandel is well underway with vintages from 2002 through 2009 melding into complex and decadent layers of our 2010 bottling. Our wine-making team spends many hours tuning the final blend of our Late Harvest resulting in a true dessert wine to be savored.
Aromas of toffee, caramel, and candied cherries greet the nose and melt into layers of mulled plums, figs with hints of blueberry adding depth and complexity. This lush wine coats the palate with thick, ripe plums, stewed fruits and exotic spices while maintaining flawless structure and balance. Enjoy with a hard, salty cheese such as Fiscalini cheddar or a rich, ripe Epoisses. Dark chocolate cake or a classic fruit pudding will highlight the decadence of his wine. With restraint, our Late Harvest Zinfandel can be cellared through 2015 and beyond.
