Jeffrey's Pick!
We would like to introduce you to our fantastic Vineyard House staff and let them share some insider knowledge on our wines. This week's Staff Pick comes from wine educator Jeffrey Manczuk and is only available from the winery!

Highlighting a balance between Petit Verdot's classic wild berry and tobacco elements and Zinfandel's red raspberry and spice character, this unique wine is both sumptuous and sophisticated

Wine Profile

Production Notes
COMPOSITION 83% Zinfandel 17% Petit Verdot
Winemaker Notes
· A sophisticated mix of wild blackberry, blueberry and vanilla bean notes, underscored by dark chocolate and tobacco leaf layers · The Petit Verdot adds depth and firmness, but the tannins remain smooth and approachable · Generous flavors of chocolate-covered wild strawberries with hints of lavender and blackberry jam finish
Production
· A long, moderately cool summer led to a harvest spread out between mid-August and November · The relaxed pace allowed us to pick in numerous passes, focusing on individual rows or a single side of the vines · Early frosts and drought conditions were countered with a meticulous approach to viticulture and sorting · 2008 yielded small crops with good concentration and soft, appealing tannins
