ABOUT THIS WINE
This limited Zinfandel hand-selected lot is a blend of the best of both Napa (53%) and Sonoma (47%). Together, this densely structured, deep purple blend of rich ripe fruit characters linger elegantly to a long, soft supple finish.
93 POINTS - "With a dark red hue, the wine opens up with lively notes of fresh baked fruit cobbler, wild berries, mint, cedar and allspice. On the palate, the flavors of plum, raspberry and boysenberry are enhanced with hints of black pepper, bittersweet chocolate, and toffee. With natural richness, bright acidity, smooth tannins and plenty of structure, the finish is long, vivacious and rewarding." - Chris Sawyer

The Napa Zin was sourced from a low-yielding, head-trained sustainably farmed vineyard planted over 75 years ago! The blend includes some old vine Petite Sirah, Carignane, and a touch of Mourvedre as well. The wine shows intense juicy red fruit and spicy complexity. The Sonoma Zin from mostly the Dry Creek area, exhibits lush raspberry fruit richly entwined with savory plum, cedar, and exotic spice.
