Zinfandel – Eagle Mountain

Vintner’s Reserve Zinfandel.

Soaring Eagle Collection.

Eagle Mountain Vineyards and Winery.

Eagle Mountain is in Travelers Rest, South Carolina and proudly offers a California wine experience.

Eagle Mountain wines are produced under the expertise of distinguished winemaker George Bursick.

This Zinfandel fruit was sourced from vineyards around the Mokelumne River in Lodi, California.

The wine was fermented and bottled in Temecula under the Eagle Mountain label.

Decanted for 30 minutes. May have benefited from additional decanting.

Dark purple in color with a bright youthful rim.

Very jammy on the nose as one would expect, blackberry, black cherry, cocoa bean, cloves and nutmeg layered through the bouquet .

Dry and hot, medium tannins and medium-low acidity.

Soft fruit flavors on the tongue, dried raspberries, black cherries, black currants, and gently fading to notes of cocoa, caramel, clove, and nutmeg.

15.3% ABV.

All too often California juice which is bottled in non-California labeled wines just don’t hold up the quality.

This Zinfandel is a nice exception.

JenNis Beverage Marketing score of 90 points.
