A medium-bodied wine that presents spicy aromas of black pepper and curry powder with ripe fruit flavors, medium-acidity and fine grained tannins.(76% Zinfandel/17% Petite Sirah/7% Carignane). Fruit picked from 120 year old and younger vines was fermented in open-top bins, after which the wine matured in neutral oak.
It is a wine with balanced acidity which makes a robust wine that is a perfect pairing with rich, well-flavored foods.
This 2007 Mescolanza was fermented in open bins and matured through its secondary malolactic fermentation in older, seasoned barrels providing an ever so subtle kiss of oak.
From the outstanding 2007 vintage comes the 2nd release of our Mescolanza from the mixed black vineyard comprised of Zinfandel, Petite Sirah and Carignane. This 9 year old wine exhibits aromas of red fruit, chocolate and black pepper. Soft and silky on the palate but still has plenty of structure to keep this wine healthy for another 10 years.
