Joseph Swan Zeigler Vineyard Zinfandel 2016
In 1967 Joe Swan set out with 13 hectares in the Russian River Valley in Sonoma county. His first wine was a Zinfandel from some vines that he had taken on in that year. Joe's philosophy comes from the time he spent in France, low production equals high quality. This, added to years and years of experience, has created one of the best Zinfandel producers in California. The wines are full of the jammy fruits expected with Zinfandel, however, there's a Burgundian influence, which gives so much freshness and acidity.
