Blackberry, fig, and pepper notes on the nose. Dark, layered fruit on the palate with accents of black olive and cocoa. Firm, bright acidity on the finish. JO (11/20)
Despite cool spring weather that delayed budbreak, a light crop at this hillside vineyard ripened quickly. Color and tannin were slow to extract so we extended maceration after fermentation and pressed at eleven days. Fifteen months in barrel has softened the wine. This full, rich zinfandel can be enjoyed as a young wine and will develop further over the next five to six more years.
