Winemaker's Notes

#72 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2012

Critical Acclaim

"A seemingly weightless, gracious wine, the 2010 Zinfandel Pesenti Vineyard impresses for its superb balance and pure class. Layers of sweet, floral infused nuances add complexity to the expressive red-toned fruit. Saline notes appear later, giving the finish an attractive tension. "
94 Points

"That rare Zin that shows both richness and a sleek sense of elegance. Briary and floral black raspberry aromas lead to delicately complex flavors of smoky cherry, wild anise and white peppercorn. Drink now through 2020."
93 Points
