Winemaking Notes

Ruby red colored with fresh aromas of ripe blackberries, cherry pie, black pepper and dusty earth, this full bodies wine was aged for 18 months in primarily French oak barrels, which added layers of toast and baking spices. Elegant and silky, this wine has refines tannins and is extremly well balanced. Enjoy this Zinfandel now with Manchego cheese, bacon-wrapped dates or spiced BBQ dishes, or cellar for enjoyment over the next two to four years, 

Production Notes
Although 2017 proved to be an inconsistent year for weather, what started as somewhat challenging quickly turned into a very rewarding harvest. We saw both heavy rain early on and heat spikes in August and September, some reaching past 100F, Heat this late in the season in Dry Creek Valley means rich flavor development with lower sugars, exactly what we like to see for our Zinfandel. Satisfied with the quality and balance of the fruit, we harvested on September 28.
