Listed on the Top 100 Wines 2014 in the San Francisco Chronicle this Zinfandel has been lauded by drinkers and critics alike as a multi-dimensional restrained Zinfandel that re-imagines what you come to expect from the California varietal.
Picked at low brix to highlight acidity, nerve, and fruit on the bright-red spectrum of Zinfandel. Essential aromatics of bramble-brush and spice remind us what we're drinking, but the palate, alive with fresh mouth-watering acidity and subtle nuances of fruit are a departure from the expected. Delicacy, finesse - a distilled, pure eau-de-vie focus of flavor has invigorated our fondness for this often less-than-magnificent variety.
Made naturally, meaning no use of inoculated yeasts or bacteria, only native yeast to spark fermentation. No added powdered tannins or enzymes. A minimal dose of S02 is added 4 weeks before bottling to some wines.
