WINE NOTES

 

 · Grape Sourcing ·

Grapes for our wine were harvested from California’s cooler coastal climate vineyards, primarily the cooler growing areas of the San Joaquin Valley and Sacramento River Delta.  In these areas, warm days allow the grapes to ripen with complexity and richness of flavor, while cool nights preserve the grapes’ crisp acidity.

 

 · Winemaking ·

The grapes were fermented in stainless steel for approximately one week.  After pressing, the wine was aged in a combination of new and used French and American oak barrels which add vanilla and sweet spice notes.  Ripe, rich Zinfandel flavors were enhanced with a touch of Petite Sirah, which provides a rich tannic structure, framing the Zinfandel fruit.

 

  · Winemaker's Notes ·

Luscious concentrated blackberry aromas, with brambly flavors of rhubarb, strawberry and vanilla with lingering hints of toast & smoke.  The wine will pair well with roasted or grilled meats, sausages or even more complex, spicy dishes such as jambalaya or paella.
