Winemaker's Notes

(From 2011 Vintage) Spice, lush black fruit flavors of Alexander Valley. Briary and raspberry flavors are present, along with structure of of cooler Dry Creek Valley. Overall, this is a balanced and elegantly structured Zinfandel.

    vegetative smokey and dark fruit aromas. a tad bitter with thick body, almost velvet like to tongue. a hint of bell pepper and cherry jam in aftertaste. great zinfin but too strong for me

    Acidic on first sniff - very smooth on the finish. Decant & let it breathe. It mellows the tannins & brings out the natural sweetness of the Zinfandel grape.

    (From 2006 Vintage) Well-defined berryish fruit is the centerpiece in both the outgoing aromas and the full, fleshy flavors of this weighty effort, yet, for all of its volume and richness, it stays nicely on the varietal track with its background notes of dry spices and briar. It is youthfully exuberant and somewhat juicy in character, and it will be at its best in service with savory roasts of pork marinated in brine and basted with young port.
