Winemaking Notes
Ruby red colored with fresh aromas of ripe blackberries, cherry pie, black pepper and dusty earth, this full-bodied 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 refined tannins and is extermley well balanced. Enjoy this Zinfandel now with Manchego cheese, bacon-wrapped dates or spiced barbecue dishes, or cellar for enjoyment over the next two to four years.
Production Notes
The 2018 growing season was dry through the spring with well below normal precipitation. Cooler weather dominated this vintage with only two short, relatively mild heat spikes through the entire growing season. Summer days were very pleasant in Sonoma County with highs in the 70s and 80s and with August having even warmer temperatures, With everything in balance, we harvested September 29, 2018.
