Wine Description

(2014 Vintage) Though the vast majority of our wines are single vineyard designates, Juvenile is actually composed of a variety of young vines that have been replanted in several of our old vine sites. We tag the vine when we replant it so as not to mix the brand new vine with its much older neighbors, then pick these young vines separately and make a distinct wine. The vines that make up Juvenile range in age from about 6-25 years, and we pull from 18 of our best vineyards across California, including Hayne, Ueberroth, Pesenti, Salvador, Vineyard 101, Fredericks and Kirschenmann.

    (2002 Vintage) Deep red-ruby. Aromas of raspberry syrup, cracked pepper and fruit cake. Sweet, sappy and lush, offering lovely red fruit and spice flavors. A soft, approachable zinfandel that finishes with sweet tannins. Excellent value.

    (2005 Vintage) Moderately saturated medium ruby. Red cherry, pepper and spice on the nose. Fresh and juicy in the mouth, with a light touch to the red fruit and spice flavors. A very fresh style of zinfandel with good intensity and length. This is an excellent value.
