Tasting Notes
APPEARANCE: Bright red AROMA: Raspberry and strawberry jam, black pepper, black licorice PALATE: Medium-full bodied, elegant tannins, medium-long finish
Vineyard Notes
Spring of 2015 began warm causing early growth causing the harvest to begin before the annual average. The warmth helped the grapes mature beautifully and fully. Inexplicably the yields were unusually low across Paso Robles. The resultant wines are very full in color, flavor and aromas. Truly an exceptional vintage.
Winemaker Notes
The goal for making the Estate Zinfandel is to showcase the beautiful Zinfandel fruit characters. Oak aging is used to frame the fruit and add structure to the wine, without overpowering their bright aromas and flavors. The American oak used for Zinfandel integrates subtle vanilla-coconut flavors which creates a lushness and fullness in the mid-palate. It is essential to pick Zinfandel at the perfect time to capture the ripe and jammy flavors before they change to raisins. TOM MYERS, Winemaker
