The immense character and intense color of this Zinfandel are derived from grapes grown on rocky hillsides at 1250 to 1550 feet elavation. The resultant Zinfandel is densely made and densely textured. It features aromas of blackberry and vanilla that segue into a focused and assertive palate with layers of bramble and dark fruit flavors. The finish is long and pleasingly complex. The final composition is 92% Zinfandel and 8% Petite Sirah. We produced 205 cases.
This delightful Zinfandel was awarded a Gold Medal at the 2018 SF Chronicle Wine Competition and a Gold Medal at the 2017 Orange County Fair.
