Wine Profile
Production Notes
2014 was year three of a drought, yet our Zinfandel vines showed little sign of being aware of the water scarcity. Yields were still strong and the fruit matured at a steady pace with the warm temperatures of vintage. We use a 3 to 5-day cold soak on our Zinfandel lots to maximize color extraction early, before the alcohol starts to build from fermentation. We then allow the must to warm up naturally and begin fermentation with native yeasts. Pumpovers are aerated and vigorous early on, then shortened and gentler later in fermentation. The blending of a small addition of Malbec helps to intensify the color and body and really juices up the aromatic complexity. The wine was aged in French and American oak (28% new) and bottled in May 2016.
Winemaker Notes
Zinfandel grown on the hillsides of the Sonoma Valley is just plain outstanding. The temperature and length of growing days offer enough heat to build fresh fruit flavors without being over ripe, but still develops hints of pepper spice like you would find in a cooler climate. I feel these hills allow that perfect blend of maturity that still expresses complexity. The 2014 vintage offers more structure than other vintages making it a great food pairing wine. I suggest enjoying this wine with a beautifully smoked brisket and always, BBQ’d pork ribs.
