The Wine: This gorgeous wine opens with fresh strawberry bursting from the glass. On the palate, flavors of boysenberry and blood orange are layered with classic, spicy Zinfandel notes of clove and black pepper. The mouthwatering acidity is balanced by chiseled tannins lending way to a finish that is both long and savory.
Vintage: The string of near perfect vintages continued for the fifth year in 2016, with an early bud break and flowering followed by sunny days and relatively mild temperatures throughout the growing season. We were able to have almost all our grapes safely in the cellar before the valley's first significant fall rainstorm arrived on October fourteenth.
Vineyard: Our 34-acre vineyard above Calistoga is the warmest of our five vineyards and the sole source of our Zinfandel. Its northeast exposure catches abundant morning sun but is shaded from the hot, late afternoon sun and combined with the vineyard's gravelly loam soil, creates the perfect spot to grow this varietal. We farm all of our vineyards naturally, without artificial pesticides or herbicides, and they are certified organic.
