Zinfandel
Shale Terrace, 2006

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

Essentially, only a few more than those who bought this as futures will have the pleasure of drinking it at home. I will pour it at the open house to economize on your cellar and tease those who did not order it last August. That’s OK, there’s plenty of good Zinfandel available in this offering. There are some bottles of 2003 and 2004 Shale Terrace lurking about the cellar that are available as well. We’ve included those on the order form so that we may satisfy that ‘Shale jones.’ Vertical selections might be a good idea.
