Opulent blackberry and dark chocolate on the nose. Plenty of bramble fruit mingles with brown spice and dusty tannins on the palate. Well-balanced with a clean and elegant finish. MB (2/22)
Late summer heat created stress and limited yields for these dry-farmed vines. By mid- August sugars were rising quickly so we picked non-stop for three days to get all the grapes in before they became over-ripe. An extra adjacent block of carignane was included to bring ripe fruit and acidity into balance. This old vine zinfandel can be enjoyed upon release and over the next five to six years. JO (1/19)
