Zinfandel

Alexander Valley 2012 A turn of Goode luck

Description

Some say rolling snake eyes is bad news, but at Murphy-Goode we’re always feeling lucky. That’s why we picked “snake eyes” as the name for the best Zinfandel we make each vintage. This year, Snake Eyes Zin comes from the old-vine Ellis Ranch, contributing jammy red and black fruit character with excellent structure. Aging in French and American oak barrels gave the wine hints of toasty oak and spice. Here’s to making your own kind of luck!

Winemaker's Notes

The "Snake Eyes" designation is awarded to our best Zinfandel vineyard of the vintage making it a cult favorite of Murphy-Goode fans. This 2012 single vineyard Zinfandel originates from the Trusendi Vineyard in Alexander Valley. The Trusendi Vineyard is one of our original sources of Zin that has always been a staple of the Liar`s Dice; in fact grower Mike Mazzoni was one of our founders regulars for the daily Liar’s Dice games in Geyserville. This vintage of Snake Eyes is full of spicy fresh fruit that will keep you coming back for more due to its rich flavors of blackberry jam, black raspberries, and black cherries all structured with soft tannins and finished with a sweet toasty note with subtle notes of chocolate.
