Wine Profile

Production Notes
Composition 70% Zinfandel, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon Aging & Oak 16 months in oak, 70% French oak, 30% American oak 40% new, 60% second vintage
Winemaker Notes
On the nose, aromas of ripe wild strawberry, fruit cobbler and saddle leather dominate. The fruit and berry notes continue on the palate, underscored by subtler notes of earth and cinnamon spice. Elegant tannins, excellent depth, and a full, rich mid-palate, add layers of complexity to this estate-grown wine.
Production
2012 offered near-perfect growing conditions. Warm weather during bloom allowed the vines to set a large crop with increased yields were the result of more berries, not larger berries. Slightly cooler-than-average post-veraison weather, and a lack of any heat events allowed for greatly extended hang time. Harvest was 2-3 weeks later than average, and the grapes arrived at the winery in pristine condition.
