Wine Description

Our estate Zinfandel expresses the more feminine side of the variety, perhaps due to the gentleness of the growing season. The nose smells of candied violets and black cherries. The mouth is very pretty and surprisingly soft.

WINEMAKER'S NOTE
After the fermentations generated their maximum heat (90+ degrees), the chilling jackets were turned on to slow them down, to capture the maximum amount of fermentation aromas, and to give as much time on the skins without harsh seed extraction.

  • Background
    In 1992, vintner and restaurateur Pat Kuleto founded Kuleto Estate in a remote mountain setting overlooking Lake Hennessey, Pritchard Hill and the towns of Rutherford and St. Helena. The 761-acre ranch features 90 acres of vineyards divided into 80 microblocks based upon soil, exposure, elevation and topography. The wines from Kuleto Estate are always deep, intense and luscious.
