Darcie Kent Vineyards

2017 Field Blend Zin

About this wine

Our Field Blend Zin 2017 is a plush, mouth-filling wine with oodles of black fruit and sweet spice notes. The nose is redolent of blackberry lemonade, cherry cordial, and baking spices. The palate is chewy, and the flavors veer toward baked plum, bourbon barrel, and chocolate toffee. Its bright acidity enlivens its fruitiness, which lingers through the finish. The wine is quite expressive in its youth, but proper cellaring will enhance its spicy tannins and sweet oak characteristics through 2022. This wine is named 'Field Blend' because of the unique way we join two varietals, zinfandel and petite sirah. Rather than blending two fruit forward varietals after aging. We marry them at harvest. In our Crown Block estate vineyard, zinfandel and petite sirah are planted together at a ratio of 3:1. When hand harvested, these grapes are joined from the beginning of their journey to become wine.
