Winemaker's Notes:

Fresh, bright berry fruit from our heritage Russian River vineyard combined with the ripe peppery jamminess from their Alexander Valley vineyards make for wonderful diversity of flavor, showcasing the best that Zinfandel can offer in one wine. Aging for 16 months in French and American oak enhances the Zinfandel's inherent spicy qualities, while the ebullient fruit of this medium-rich wine suggests enjoyment over many years.
