The Prisoner Wine Company, 'Saldo' Zinfandel 2017, California

Saldo is the prototypical Zinfandel that showcases some of Northern California’s most renowned Zinfandel vineyards and regions. The word ‘Saldo’ is of Latin origin often referring to ‘from here and there’ or in this case, representing the sourcing of Zinfandel from regions ‘here and there’ across Northern California. These vines are grown in distinct soil types in the cool climates of Sonoma and Mendocino county and stretching inland to the warmer regions of Lodi and the Sierra Foothills. 2017 vintage – Dark ruby color with bold aromas of black licorice, black pepper, cherry, and baking spice. The entry is rich, full, and scintillating. The palate is mouthwatering and smooth with a hint of chocolate. The finish is voluptuous with soft, velvety tannins. 85% Zinfandel; 15% blend of Petite Sirah and Syrah. Aging: A combination of French and American oak barrels, 25% new.
