Winemaker Notes

A dark garnet, almost brooding Vermillion red color is striking in the glass, much richer and deeper than previous vintages. Aromas of red fruits dominate, showing pomegranate, cherry and boysenberry, accented by white pepper and cedary oak spice. Flavors bring a smile, truly ‘Zinny’ led by raspberry and loganberry nicely presented with allspice and classic Zinfandel spice character. This wine is almost plush, round and coating, with fine grain tannins and a decidedly long finish, suggesting the potential for aging with further complexities and nuances yet to be revealed. Still, this will bring a smile of immediate satisfaction, particularly when paired with robust grilled meats, rich pastas such as Rigatoni Bolognese, hearty stews and artisan cheeses.

Wine Enthusiast
Saturated with dark, almost jammy fruit flavors, this is an extremely flavorful and nicely dry wine that also has great structure. An intensely dark color leads to blackberry and boysenberry aromas, distinctive blackberry and black-pepper flavors and a rich mouthfeel that is well-laced by fine-grained tannins. Editors’ Choice

A large and diverse appellation within California’s North Coast AVA, Mendocino is home to several smaller sub-regions—most notably the Anderson Valley. This scenic region, with rolling hills covered in redwood forests as well as vineyards, is one of the world’s top producers of certified organically-grown grapes. Due to wide geographical and climatic variation, a vast array of wine styles can be found here.

Unapologetically bold, spice-driven and jammy, Zinfandel has secured it’s title as the darling of California vintners by adapting well to the states’ diverse microclimates and landscapes. Born in Croatia, it later made its way to southern Italy where it was named Primitivo. Fortunately, the imperial nursery of Vienna catalogued specimens of the vine, which sourced a journey to New England in 1829. Parading the true American spirit, Zinfandel found a new home in California during the Gold Rush of 1849. Somm Secret—California's ancient vines of Zinfandel are those that survived the neglect of Prohibition; today these vines produce the most concentrated, ethereal and complex examples.
