2014 Zinfandel, Napa Valley

The Wine: Our rich and full-bodied Zinfandel is
graced with an elegant structure and richly nuanced
flavors of blackberries and ripe cherries. A subtle waft
of roasted coffee beans and lightly toasted almonds
entwines with soft raspberries in a luxuriously long
and persistent finish. This food-friendly wine pairs
beautifully with a wide array of dishes, such as
sausage pizza, grilled shish-kabobs or roasted rack
of lamb.

Vintage: For the third year in a row, Napa Valley
experienced an exceptional vintage, aided by near-drought
conditions. Our yield was smaller than
2013, due to drought and a warmer growing season.
Julys relatively low temperatures, coupled with high
relative humidity, slowed down sugar accumulation
to achieve perfect ripeness with lower alcohol.
Harvest started and ended about two weeks earlier
than normal, producing superb quality.

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 soils, creates the perfect spot to grow this varietal. We farm all of our vineyards naturally, without artificial pesticides or herbicides, and they are certfied organic.
