Aida Estate · Late Harvest Zinfandel ·
Bottled 2013

Our "Modified Solera" style-blending program for our Late Harvest Zinfandel continues to develop and produce a desert wine of luxurious depth and complexity. Composed of vintages 2002 through 2012 - older vintages add decadent depth while younger vintages add freshness and life. The careful blending of our Late Harvest Zinfandel results in a dessert wine to be savored.

Aromas of dark chocolate toffee, caramel and vanilla cream soda delight the nose and melt into layers of fresh, dark plum and dried violets. Deep, rich flavors of Oregon blueberry compote and toasted walnuts mingle with dark rum and hints of espresso, all culminate into a lingering finish. Brilliantly balanced, our 2013 Late Harvest expresses vibrant acidity while softened by delicate sweetness. Dark chocolate cake or grilled peaches with aged balsamic will highlight the delicious fruit notes of this wine. Enjoy our Late Harvest Zinfandel this winter or cellar through 2020 and beyond.
