Winemaker's Notes:

Extremely hot temperatures leading up to the 2008 harvest resulted in lower yields of intensely concentrated fruit. The 2008 Estancia Zinfandel is a bold, juicy wine that tastes of freshly crushed berries with a hint of cinnamon and lasts long on the palate.

The appearance is dark red garnet, with aromas of freshly crushed berry, with hints of vanilla, coffee and dark chocolate. The flavors include raspberries and black cherries, with spicy notes of cinnamon, followed by a long finish.

About Estancia:

Estancia, based in Monterey, was founded in 1986. The name Estancia is roughly translated from the Spanish word for "estate," and emphasizes our conviction that the world's best wines capture the essence of their place of origin. At Estancia we control the process from the start—from the trials in our experimental vineyard blocks, to planting, harvesting, fermenting and aging the wines. We've built a winery that allows us to devote the same attention to detail in winemaking that we give to our grapes. We use open-top fermenters and small basket presses for our Pinot Noir and new red-wine fermentation tanks that are fit for the diverse blocks in our Paso Robles vineyards. It is this hands-on crafting of the wines, from grapes to bottle, that result in our superior wine quality.
