2013 ZD Wines Founder’s Reserve Pinot Noir


1 in stock


Tasting Notes:

This release of the Founder’s Reserve Pinot Noir marks ZD’s 45th Anniversary vintage. The growing season began as a moderate winter with below normal rainfall, followed by a warm, dry spring. These conditions led to an early bud break and optimal bloom, resulting in a healthy, balanced crop.

The fruit for the Founder’s Reserve Pinot Noir is sourced entirely from ZD’s organically certified Carneros Estate Vineyard. The small clusters of berries produce a concentrated wine with an intense aroma and flavor profile. Gentle winemaking practices in the cellar, including hand punch downs during fermentation and a careful selection of French Oak barrels for aging, has led to a wine that consistently reflects its distinct terroir.

The 2013 Founder’s Reserve Pinot Noir exhibits a beautiful aroma defined by a core of briary cherry, plum and rhubarb notes. Subtle hints of cedar, toasted nuts and vanilla complement the palate which is ripe, lush and well balanced.
