Ultimate Beverage Challenge 87 points - Aromas of freshly baked mixed berry pie with plenty of sweet spices. The rich berried fruit is nicely balanced by a stern earth and spice component. The flavors are strong and persistent, making this the perfect wine for barbecue. ” (Jun 2013)
Varietally distinct, this Zinfandel captures the true essence of Alexander Valley. The fruit is sourced from a variety of vineyards with differing microclimates. This provides the winery with an array of unique parcels of fruit. Once vinified, these parcels are blended together and then allowed to mature in French and American oak for 10 months. Further complexity is achieved by the addition of small amounts of Sangiovese and Syrah.
