Ruby red in color with aromas of dusty strawberries, red licorice, white peach, jasmine, vanilla bean and brown spices. Medium-bodied with flavors of Bing cherry, red plum, pomegranate, cranberries and baked apple with herbal and earthy undertones. Polished tannins and fresh acidity create a complex, balanced wine. The finish is long and juicy, making this wine immediately approachable yet worthy of aging. TG (5/22)
Early budbreak in the spring advanced the growing season. By the first week of August, the zinfandel and carignane were ripe. We returned two weeks later for the mataro. After a natural yeast fermentation, the three varieties were tasted and combined and then sent to barrel to age for fourteen months. This unique old vine blend is enjoyable as a young wine and will mature over the next seven years. JO (1/21)
