We take immense pride in the quality of this wine as we want it to reflect how good California's beloved Zinfandel can be. A quick glimpse at what goes into it tells most of the story. In order of percentage, the wine comes from Bedrock Vineyard, Teldeschi Ranch, Sodini Ranch, Nervo Ranch, Katushas, Evangelho, Esola, Casa Santinamaria, and Story Vineyard. It is about 88% Zinfandel blended with Petite Sirah, Carignan, Alicante Bouschet and many different interplanted varieties that maintain poise and add complexity and structure. This has plenty of juiciness and should be delightful in the nearer term with a good decant; however, as many have discovered this wine will age gracefully and improve with time in bottle.
Fun to drink, with expressive raspberry and violet aromas and zesty, vibrant cherry, toasted cinnamon and spice flavors that finish on a lively note. Drink now through 2021. 4,500 cases made.
