Ever our flagship Zinfandel, this charming wine opens with aromas of rhubarb, saw dust, and allspice. Plum, black cherry, and boysenberry marry with notes of leather, tobacco, casis, and menthol on the palate for a slightly dry finish.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Pale garnet, bordering on brick. Extremely balanced, with light grainy tannins, nice length, and a full body. A spicy nose of bay leaves, rose petals, white pepper, coriander, and anise opens up to a mouth full of raspberry brambles and strawberry-rhubarb pie. Accented with hints of ripe stone-fruit, red currants, and vanilla.
Production Notes
The fruit for this Zinfandel was sourced from multiple vineyards on the west side of Paso Robles. Picked as they reached optimal ripeness, the grapes were hand harvested and carefully destemmed. The resulting musts were fermented to dryness and softly pressed before being aged for 18 months in a combination of 30% new French, Hungarian, and American oak barriques and puncheons.
