Alcohol By Volume


Elegant nose of raspberry, cranberry, pipe tobacco and wild fennel. Hints of black cherry, sarsaparilla, plum and black tea meet exquisite structure and well-integrated tannins on the palate. SR (11/22)
2018 marks the twentieth year that we have made wine from this old vine vineyard. Lower yields meant greater concentration of fruit, color and tannin. To prevent over- extraction, we fermented half the grapes with a submerged cap. Twenty percent carignane brings lively acidity to the ripe zinfandel. This well balanced wine is enjoyable upon release. It will age elegantly over the next eight to nine years. JO (3/20)
