Wine & Spirits 92
A heady and satisfying Zin, this takes ripe cherry favors toward forest-berry and spruce scents, before tannins shade the fruit in notes of leather and wood. It’s floral and formidably rich, needing another year or two of bottle age, or several hours in a decanter before dinner with roast lamb.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 90
Medium to deep garnet-purple colored and blended with 5% Petite Sirah, the 2017 Zinfandel offers up intense baked raspberries, blackberry preserves and kirsch scents with hints of baking spices, dusty soil, dried herbs and potpourri. Full-bodied with a firm, chewy texture and refreshing acidity, it has plenty of spicy red and black preserves with an earthy finish.

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.

This food-friendly wine pairs beautifully with a wide array of dishes, such as sausage pizza, grilled shish-kabobs or roasted rack of lamb.

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.
