Zinfandel
Shale Terrace, 2000

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

Once again, because of its small production, the allocation of this wine sold out on futures last August. This is one of our most focused Shale bottlings and one of my favorites. If you missed this wine on futures,the 2000 “Old & Mature” Zinfandel has a similar forward character valued by “Shale” fans.
