A well-integrated and aromatic wine, this year’s Mustard Creek is the epitome of class and sophistication. Raspberry liqueur, cassis, and candied blackberry lead, followed by subtle but luxuriant spices like cinnamon, allspice, and toasted sesame. The wine deepens in the mouth, shifting from red to black fruit like blackcurrant and ripe summer plum. A harmonious acid structure and supple tannins lead to an extremely long finish, leaving with understated notes of chestnut and forest floor.

Tasting Notes
Unique aromas of cantaloupe, fresh lingonberry, kiwi, and sarsaparilla set this Zinfandel apart, while flavors of black cherry, anise, plum and fine leather provide a full-bodied palate. The complexity and balance of this wine keeps you coming back for more.

Production Notes
This Mustard Creek Zinfandel was harvested in late September. After careful sorting and processing, the beautiful whole berries were fermented in bins and punched down by hand 4 times a day. The gentle basket pressing yielded exceptional wine that was transferred to a blend of 55% new French, Hungarian, and American oak barrels to age for 15 months.
