Our Zinfandel from Mendocino is a pure varietal expression of red and black fruit, with a hint of black pepper and a concentrated finish. We also look to single vineyards in the Russian River and Dry Creek appellations that showcase the richness and distinction of those places.
From the winemaker
A dark garnet, almost brooding Vermillion red color is striking in the glass, much richer and deeper than previous vintages. Aromas of red fruits dominate, showing pomegranate, cherry and boysenberry, accented by white pepper and cedary oak spice. Flavors bring a smile, truly ‘Zinny’ led by raspberry and loganberry nicely presented with allspice and classic Zinfandel spice character. This wine is almost plush, round and coating, with fine grain tannins and a decidedly long finish, suggesting the potential for aging with further complexities and nuances yet to be revealed. Still, this will bring a smile of immediate satisfaction, particularly when paired with robust grilled meats, rich pastas such as Rigatoni Bolognese, hearty stews and artisan cheeses.
