Winemaker's Notes

Our Old Vine Zinfandel comes from the two nearby Old Vine Zinfandel Vineyards. Our winemaker, Tom Jones, crafted the 2017 vintage in small French Oak barrels to create a rich and luxurious wine. This wine displays lovely blackberry and spice aromas, along with a hint vanilla. On the palate, rich flavors of raspberry, black cherry, and plum with smooth tannins that give a long finish. There are soft textures throughout this wine and a little pepper spice on the finish. The body is so smooth and balanced with moderate tannins.
