Varietal Content: 93% Zinfandel, 7% Petite Sirah
Winemaker Notes
With an abundance of wild blackberry and strawberry flavors, as well as layers of violet and fresh-cracked black pepper, this exceptionally balanced Zinfandel offers silky tannins and mouthfilling richness. The finish is lush and elegant, highlighting the best of Sonoma County Zinfandel.
Production
The 2016 growing season began with generous winter rains, followed by a spring and summer marked by moderate temperatures and abundant sunshine. Like several recent vintages, the 2016 harvest came early, delivering exquisite quality grapes. After the modest size crop of 2015, 2016 saw a welcome return to average yields. Overall, the 2016 whites show an ideal combination of lovely richness and excellent natural acidity, while the reds are lush and complex, with beautiful color and concentration.
