An urbane Zinfandel blend that pairs structure with a refined sense of zestiness, offering cherry, bay leaf and spice flavors that linger toward polished tannins. Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink now through 2023.

Winemaker Notes
As it evolves in the glass, an alluring Zinfandel-infused nose of brambly raspberry and peppery spice evolves to reveal subtle hints of nutmeg and cinnamon. Luscious and juicy on the entry, the palate offers deep, rich layers of black raspberry and cherry, framed by the firm, structured tannins of the Cabernet Sauvignon.
Production
Other than being approximately a month earlier than usual, our 2015 harvest was smooth and successful, yielding exceptional quality grapes. To allow us ample opportunities for blending, we harvested 16 different grape varieties over the course of 12 weeks. During this period, Mother Nature provided heat to speed up ripening when we needed it, and equally well-timed cooler temperatures when the vines needed a respite. The extended harvest allowed us to pick all varieties at optimal ripeness. As a result, our white grapes show lovely aromatics and varietal character, and our reds show beautiful depth and concentration.
