Tasting Notes

The 2017 harvest season developed rapidly due to a heat wave at the beginning and yielded an exceptional quality. The Clockspring Zinfandel is an old vine vineyard down the road from Iron Hub Winery. The nose of this wine includes aromas of blackberry jam and ripe cherry. The flavors are rich with Bing cherries, black pepper and plum with a hint of clove and vanilla on the finish.
