Beekeeper 2018 Hidden Hillside Reserve Zinfandel Sonoma County

2018 shows off a very robust vintage with floral notes, amazing perfume, and bold streaks of richness, Hillside character and dense fleshy intense Zinfandel fruit. Hidden Hillside is a Reserve selection, blending our most ambitious barrels together to make one of our more daring and bold Zinfandel statements, which features approximately 30% new high-tier French Oak. Beekeeper seeks to change minds about Zinfandel and to elevate standards for this amazing grape varietal. Dark, floral notes, spice, dried herb, and underbrush give way to purple plum, dark cherry, cracked black pepper, gravel, stone, and creme brulee. The elevated acidity from higher elevation hillside fruit ensures that this wine will age gracefully for a decade or more. 2018 is a bolder expression than in recent vintages and I anticipate it will be a favorite vintage for our mailing list clients. As usual, the virtue of patience is rewarded with properly aged Beekeeper wines. We also recommend drinking our wines just north of cellar temperature, cooler than most, at around 60 degrees.
