Winemaker's Notes

Spicy, mountain grown fruit with aromas of dark cherry, cola, currants and berries. This site consistently shows a wild side and given the elevation and exposure, it's no wonder. The fruit comes from the spine of Howell Mountain – brambly, wild berry fruits ranging in color from red to black. Both bold and refined, with a tannin / acid synergy and a finish that doesn't quit.

Critical Acclaim

"A sensational offering, the 2009 Zinfandel Cedarman boasts a deep plum/purple color as well as notes of blueberries, raspberries, spring flowers, damp earth, pepper and licorice. It is a complex, full-throttle, deep, rich Zinfandel to enjoy over the next 6-8 years.
Range: 92-94 "
94 Points

"Rich yet densely structured, with appealing blackberry and toasty vanilla aromas and deep flavors of huckleberry, mineral and licorice that balance ripeness with refined acidity and bold tannins."
93 Points
