Inviting jammy fruit with pepper and mint on the nose, medium bodied with soft elegant tannins, minerally raspberry fruit. Notes of allspice and chaparral on the finish. JO (7/18)
Warm weather brought veraison early at which point we thinned the Young Vines parcel to intensify flavors. All three parcels were picked in early September and crushed to separate fermentors. After malolactic we chose the Old Vines and Triangle blocks for their richness and balanced acidity. In later tasting we added the aromatic Young Vines block to complement the wine’s sensuous fruit. This beautiful zinfandel, enjoyable on release, will develop further over seven to eight years.
