The Wine

Fresh red fruit aromas of blood orange, sour cherry and cranberry commingle with savory cardamom and clove, hinting to the intriguing core to follow. On the palate, juicy red berries, ripe pluot and rose hip precede hints of laurel and lightly­ roasted coffee beans. Vivacious tannins and fresh acidity make for an elegant balance and lasting finish.

Vintage

We had high rain fall at the beginning of the season, a mild winter, and then we finally transitioned into a beautiful spring. There was an early bud break and flowering, followed by sunny days and high temperatures through June and August.

Vineyard

Our 34-acre vineyard, which is located above Calistoga, is  the  warmest  of our  five vineyards  and is 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.
