Cerro, Zinfandel, Napa Valley 2013
In his early years, the career path of winemaker Derek Beitler was already and most likely set. His grandfather, Charlie Wagner, founded Caymus Vineyards in 1972. Once Derek became of age, Charlie and Derek's Uncle, Chuck Wagner, encouraged him to begin working at Caymus. Now, he's on his own and boy, did he learn how make beautiful wine! Cerro (meaning "hill" is spanish) is 100% estate Zinfandel from the Nichelinni Vineyard in the Chiles Valley AVA of Napa Valley. We love this wine for the red fruit and robust spice aromas and flavors that drive the palate and blend with supple texture. Cerro also delivers spirited acidity and tannin that should give the wine excellent cellaring potential. 14.7% alc. Only 92 cases produced.
