Winemaker's Notes

Aged two years in small oak barrels, our handcrafted wine will reward the drinker for many years to come. 

Tasting Notes

The 2017 harvest season developed rapidly due to a heat wave at the beginning and yielded an exceptional quality. The 2017 Cross Creek Zinfandel is a blend of two old vine Zinfandel vineyards selected for their flavor profiles by Tom Jones, Winemaker. The aromas include raspberries, cherries, and chocolate. There are wonderful flavors of cherry, dark plum, and black pepper with a long finish.
