“Much like my sisters and I, our Howell Mountain wines are exuberant and bold, each capable of standing on their own while exuding finesse and complexity.”
– Angelina Mondavi, Winemaker
2013 Dark Matter Zinfandel
Harvested from our Four Sisters’ Vineyard and laid to rest for 5 years, this offering is truly something special. Critics proclaimed the 2013 the best vintage in decades and a winemaker’s dream. A growing season complete with a warm, dry spring and consistent temperatures resulted in berries with optimal ripeness and intense flavors.
This wine continues to remain an outlier from your traditional Zinfandel with explosive aromatics of black and white pepper, plum and plum blossoms, red raspberry, lavender, and strawberry. Further layers expose notes of cocoa powder and hints of nutmeg and mint. These vibrant and distinct characteristics follow through the palate, leaving you wanting more.
We recommend decanting this big Zinfandel for 30 minutes before enjoying.
