Wine Profile

Tasting Notes Dark ruby-colored, it reveals an enticing perfume of red plums, kirsch, and raspberry. Medium-bodied, it has layers of spicy flavors, elegance, and excellent balance. It will evolve for 3-4 years and drink well through 2020.
Production Notes Most of our Zinfandel grapes are sourced from Butala vineyard in St Helena, which is farmed by two Napa Valley natives, brothers Al and Ernie Butala. The quality of the fruit from this site is exceptional because it comes from old, crown-pruned vines, grown in deep, gravelly soils that were once part of a streambed. We blend in a small amount of Petit Sirah, a traditional approach that a lot of California winemakers use as the varietal has such similar fruit characteristics to Zinfandel, yet offers even richer tannins to give the wine more structure. The wine spent 17 months in a combination of French and American oak, 75% new and 25% seasoned barrels.
