Produced from a historic, pre-Prohibition era vineyard, Beeson Ranch Zinfandel is the most distinctive single vineyard Zin we produce. Initially, the wine appears to be subtle with underlying dried floral and pepper elements. However, several minutes in the glass bring forward dramatic aromas of white pepper, cardamom, and blackberry characters. On the palate, supple tannins mingle with dark cherry, blueberry, and chocolate undertones. The finish is long and pure with expressive Zinfandel characters. This is a dramatic wine from a special vineyard.
