2014 Zinfandel


$27.00 per Bottle

Tasting Notes

This wine has a strong brier orientation, layered with dried cherries and stone fruit. Red and black currants accompany a sweet note of Irish cream derived from the American oak barrels used during aging. Dried fruit flavors and moderate tannins and acidity give this wine wonderful versatility across seasons and recipes.

Vineyard Notes

Our Zinfandel comes from the more inland and northerly areas of Mendocino County, near Redwood Valley and Potter Valley. A gap in the coastal mountain range that runs through the heart of Mendocino County offers a stark diurnal temperature shift between day and night. This keeps varieties such as Zinfandel from developing too ripe and keeping the briery character many Zinfandel lovers cherish. The soil profile of this region developed mostly from the Russian River as it carved through the seismically active mountain ranges. Benchland soils are well drained and give grapevines the necessary hardships to make quality wines.
