Prima facie, one of the most open and expressive wines in the lineup. Red fruits, dark fruits, and chocolate-coated fruits flourish alongside bouquet garni, black pepper, chaparral and plentiful spices. The palate shows subtle gravelly tannins, lending backbone and structure to the wine. This year we’ve co-fermented the Estate Zinfandel fruit with a small amount (<5%) of the Carignane and heritage blend Petite Syrah interplanted on the Estate, affording additional depth and complexity to this beloved Estate wine. Ready to drink without delay!
