Wine Description

(From 2012 Vintage) Our Sonoma County Zin is warm and flavorful, enveloping your senses with blueberry, blackberry, natural vanilla, and baking spice flavors. The mouthfeel is elegantly layered and generous.Sonoma County Zinfandel is subject to marine influence from the Pacific Ocean and early afternoon fog. The soils are typically a Tuscan red hill cobbly loam with a high water-holding capacity that allows the vines to be dry-farmed. Low yields and slow ripening lead to dense and structured wines of exceptional quality.

Winemaker's Notes

Hard by the sandy shores of the Sacramento-San Joaquin River delta, the agricultural town of Lodi is home to a lot of old Zinfandel vines. It's considered a warm region, but its location, directly in line with the Golden Gate, brings daily afternoon breezes that soften the summer temperatures. Combine this with ancient vines in alluvial soil where roots grow very deep, and you've got a formula for ripe, lush Zin that's also concentrated and intense.

    That hit the spot! Chocolate aroma like they claim. Dark fruit flavors, not a simple zin.
