Winemaker's Notes

Sumptuous and inviting, the 2007 Sextant Wheelhouse Zinfandel summons a range of fruit characteristics underscored by supple tannins. To begin, a touch of cherries flow into hints of dark chocolate which roll into soft notes of raspberries only to be overtaken by a flavorful bite of red plums. Like the turn of a wheel, the structure is circular and the finish lingers with lasting momentum.

Critical Acclaim

"Ripe and jammy, showing huckleberry and licorice aromas, with zesty black cherry and toasty pepper flavors that take on depth and briary tannins on the finish. Drink now through 2014. 3,300 cases made."
