Winemaker's Notes

These head trained vines are directly adjacent to the winery, and as such they receive plenty of attention. When we re-planted this vineyard, we opted for the traditional—though much more difficult to farm—head trained method. The hard work has paid off, however, for this is Zinfandel in its purest form. The naturally rich dark fruit is well balanced by acid, and the wine is as dry as can be. Brightly colored, vivacious, with garrigue-like aromatics.

Critical Acclaim

"Saturated ruby. Complex, musky aromas of spicecake, pepper and violet, with hints of crushed rock, garrigue and leather. Creamy-sweet and large-scaled, with round flavors of dark cherry and chocolate complicated by a whiff of game. Conveys a bit of roasted heft without coming off as ponderous. Finishes with very soft, almost grenache-like tannins that really saturate the palate. Very sexy zinfandel."
