2019 Zinfandel

Sonoma Valley

Alc. 15.5% | T.A. 5.9 | pH 3.74 | 212 cases

The deep-rooted vines of our Sonoma Valley Zinfandel create a dynamic and opulent wine. Jammy aromas of mixed berries and juicy plum are followed by notes of black cherry, ripe blackberry and black cherry. Balanced by firm tannins and flawless structure, the dark fruit tones cascade into a hint of dark chocolate and spice.

Upper Ridge Vineyard – Pine Mountain – Cloverdale Peak

Alc. 14.3% | T.A. 4.8 | pH 3.80 | 116 cases

The 2019 exhibits the intensely dark hue and fruit-forward intensity characteristic of this varietal, opening with bright aromas of pomegranate and mixed berries. Impressive structure and soft tannins are complemented by juicy notes of blackberry, Bing cherry and subtle spice. This refined style is highly approachable, yet well-poised for aging.

Alc. 14.8% | T.A. 6.7 | pH 3.73 | 114 cases

Tannat is voluptuous – this full-bodied wine presents nuanced layers of complexity from first approach. Revel in the intense aromatics of dark fruit and herb. The midpalate unveils layers of black currant, dark plum, licorice, and cardamom spice.
