Shale Terrace, 2014

$ 38.00$ 80.00

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

Often, I describe this parcel as Zinfandel that wanted to be Pinot Noir.  While it still demonstrates its signature stone fruit perfume, there is a haunting rich Pinot Noir-like character to the mid palate and finish.  Some recent vintages have demonstrated more of a dark bramble berry nuance.  But this vintage is more about the Zinfandel that dresses up like Pinot Noir and looks pretty good doing so.
