Aida Estate · Late Harvest Zinfandel ·
Our “Modified Solera” style blending program for our Late Harvest Zinfandel continues to evolve including vintages from 2002 through 2010 this year, which meld into the complex and decadent layers of our 2011 bottling. The careful blending of our Late Harvest Zinfandel results in a dessert wine to be savored.
Aromas of toffee, caramel, and candied cherries greet the nose and melt into layers of mulled plum and 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 balsamic fig compote will highlight the delicious fruit notes of his wine. Enjoy our Late Harvest Zinfandel this winter or cellar through 2017 and beyond.
