Zinfandel
Shale Terrace, 1998

Within the Scherrer Vineyard there are several different soils. One vineyard site, the “Shale Terrace,” is located on a relatively deep, well-drained, fractured shale subsoil. It yields wines with an uncommon blend of richness and finesse. This wine was bottled without fining or filtration to capture the beauty and personality of this particular vineyard site.

Winemaker's Notes

Low production plus high futures demand means we have none left to sell here. Some restaurants and wine shops will still get their tiny allocations, however. It has good focus and will probably age even more gracefully than the 1997 will, if given the chance. Fortunately, the 1999 Shale Terrace is more plentiful.
