Description

Varietally distinct, this Zinfandel captures the true essence of Alexander Valley. The fruit is sourced from a variety of vineyards with differing microclimates. This provides winemaker Kevin Hall with an array of unique parcels of fruit. Once vinified, these parcels are blended together and then allowed to mature in French and American oak for 10 months.

Winemaker’s Comments

The color is deep ruby. Bing cherry and plum dominates the bouquet, followed by aromas of crushed black pepper, boysenberry and wild strawberry. Eucalyptus, cedar and cola fill the palate. The wine finishes with subtle oak nuances and integrated acid balance. This is a medium bodied wine with a cellar life of 5-8 years.
