$ 165.00

One barrel of Zinfandel – from a block in the Scherrer Vineyard planted in 1912 – asked to be bottled all by itself. Who are we to say no?

Winemaker's Notes

This is a continuation of the past few vintages’ experimentation and blending choices. It is a very rich, concentrated Zinfandel that holds its substantial alcohol level perfectly, which says a lot as I am very picky about elevated alcohol (over 15%) wines. While it is bone-dry, there is such thickness to the texture that it gives a modest sense of ‘sweetness’ from the layers of black and blue fruits and substantial extract. I am happy with the all three of these 2007 Zinfandels as they show how diverse a grape this can be. As in the past couple of years, only a small amount of 2007 ‘Special Cuveée’ was produced. This is, by quite a margin, my favorite Special Cuvée to date.
