A wild and vibrant wine. Bailey Zinfandel opens with lush blackcurrant, deep summer plum, and subtle umami notes reminiscent of shiitake and oyster mushroom. This wine is like putting your nose in a bouquet of violets, lavender, lilac, and cherry blossoms that seem to bloom from the glass. A plummy, velveteen texture leads the way to a long and fragrant finish.

Tasting Notes
"Bright violet. Ripe blackberry, cherry compote, violet and woodsmoke on the powerfully scented nose. Fleshy, appealingly sweet and expansive, offering lush black and blue fruit flavors and a subtle note of candied licorice that builds in the glass. Picks up energy with air and finishes on a smoky dark berry note, delivering powerful thrust, velvety tannins and impressive persistence." — Josh Raynolds | Vinous | Sept 2016

Production Notes
The first day of our 2014 harvest began with Bailey Zinfandel, an early-to-ripen vineyard that produces some of our most spectacular non-estate fruit. The stems were removed and the fruit was carefully sorted by hand, leaving only the best whole berries behind. These were fermented with wild yeast and punched down by hand three times a day. After alcoholic fermentation was complete, the wine was gently pressed off its skins in small basket presses to be aged in French and Hungarian oak barrels for fifteen months. Only a careful selection of our best barrels made it into the final blend for bottling.
