This is the third vintage where I have kept this part of the vineyard separate and bottled on its own. The fact that we have three truly unique expressions of Zinfandel on the same property may seem unlikely unless you actually visit, walk around and see the different soils, exposures (and probably) clones. As I try to follow the lead of the material, it is natural that they will seek their own paths. I just follow along with a helping hand here or there to help the material stay on the path itself.
Fresh plum, red and black cherry on the nose. The more time in the glass after pouring, the more the cherry notes dominate. After a couple days open, more spices and darker fruits appear. On the mouth, it’s more about dark fruits. Nice, racy brightness make this a really perfect wine for the table. It should work with an incredibly wide range of foods: From tomato and herb-based dishes to waterfowl, lamb, game, etc.
