LOVELY BOUQUET; AROMAS OF RIPE BOYSENBERRIES AND FRENCH OAK; EXCELLENT BODY WITH BALANCED ACID AND TANNINS THAT GIVE WAY TO A CONCENTRATED, LINGERING FINISH.
Wine Maker Notes
In the shadow of Sonoma’s Mayacamas mountains on the western side of the valley, come over half of the grapes for this Zinfandel. These estate vines were planted in the 1940’s and benefit from a historically recognized and unique ”banana belt” microclimate which runs through this area. Hot, sunny afternoons mitigated by cool evening Pacific fog characterize the perfect climatic conditions for growing the finest Zinfandel in the region.
In addition to our estate old-vine grapes, we use Zinfandel grapes from Sonoma County’s Dry Creek Valley. This world-renowned Zinfandel region adds extra complexity and flavor to the blend.
This versatile Zinfandel is especially suited to Mediterranean and spicy ethnic dishes as well as barbecued meats and hearty pastas.
