2016 BACA I Spy Zinfandel
Zinfandel - Howell Mountain, Napa Valley 2016 Vintage
Howell Mountain AVA
Look up. Way up. And you’ll see, on a lush hillside of native forest high above the fog line, a bowl-shaped vineyard carved into the mountain. Head trained and dry farmed with roots reaching deep into volcanic loam soil, these vines bear spectacularly beautiful fruit. The resulting wine is known for its dark, dense fruit laced with an enchanting floral perfume.
…with my little eye a meadow of grasses, flowers, fresh raspberries, blackberries, and black pepper. Breathe it in and you have I Spy, a gorgeously perfumed Zinfandel with a refreshing mid-palate weight and a juicy finish. It’s a wine for explorers, ideal for adventures off the beaten path. Don’t forget the binoculars.
