Winemaker's Notes

A blend of 93% Zinfandel and 7% Petite Sirah.

To ensure that we get the maximum amount of color and flavor from our Zinfandel grapes, we use a variety of techniques, which include fermentation in open-top fermenters for approximately one week and implementing several punch downs a day. We also blend in small amounts of Petite Sirah for added structure. The wine was aged in French oak barrels for a mere twelve months. That was all that was necessary given the fully mature internal structure of the grapes and the fact we didn't want to mask a single one of this vintage's amazing aromatic compounds. This wine pushes the envelope of sheer decadence with an expressive fragrance of briary berries, strawberry jam, pepper and spice. Deep, rich layers of blueberries, raspberries, dark chocolate and mint build and linger with a vanilla caramel finish.

This wine is spicy and has a long finish. It is very complex, yet the flavors blend well. I have been searching high and low for the wine in my area with no avail. Love that wine.com has this for a good price.

Learn About Sonoma County

But Sonoma, with her size, is able to vouch for more diversity within her borders, including sub-AVAs that are climatically varied. The atmosphere of Sonoma is decidedly laid back and down home country style. But in wines, they are keeping up with the...
