Winemaker Notes:

This impressive wine presents an aromatic profile of blackberry, cherry and red currants that speaks to the young and vibrant nature of this new vineyard. An additional few minutes in the glass reveal a sophisticated spice box of dried flowers, pepper and baking spices. On the palate, the smooth tannins are structured and fleshy. The fruit is evident but not overpowering, with layers of flavor and nuance. This Zinfandel, grown in the traditional head-pruned style, delivers an earthy mixed berry character and subtle hints of white and black pepper. The finish lingers on with supple and harmonious integration of fruit and tannins.
