Winemaker's Notes

The Jack Rabbit Flat Zinfandel is a dark ruby color that offers big style Zinfandel characters with powerful sweet jammy fruit characters of blackberry, cherry, and plum. On the palate, the wine has a bright entry with ripe flavors of berry and plum. The fruit characters, finishing with a hint of vanilla, balance the firm tannins. The block called "Jack Rabbit Flat" Zinfandel comes from the Fox Creek Vineyard, which is one of the classic ancient vineyards of Amador County that was planted over 80 years ago. The immaculately maintained vineyard gives the head-trained vines the ability to ripen to maximum potential. Thus, the fruit is picked at the higher degree of ripeness, resulting in a wine of great richness and complexity.
