Winegrowing:
2020 was a spectacular year for Zinfandel. Dry conditions, coupled with a long, mild, growing season across regions, created small, concentrated Zinfandel berries full of exceptional flavor. Throughout the year, we used aerial photos produced using NDVI (Normalized Difference Vegetation Index) technology to tailor sustainable farming practices specific to each vineyard block. We harvested at night, preserving the bright acidity which developed over the season.

Winemaking:
The grapes were carefully destemmed and optically sorted, a process which takes photos of every single grape and removes any not-perfect berry to ensure only specific and ideal fruit made it into the wine. A cold soak extracted color and flavor before primary fermentation began in tank. The wine was gently basketpressed and then racked to oak barrels to finish primary fermentation, malolactic fermentation, and aging.

Varietal Composition: 98% Zinfandel, 2% Petite Sirah
Alcohol: 15.9%


Tasting Notes

The wine bursts with bright fruit aromas of cherry and red plum, with notes of vanilla, holiday spices, and lavender all jumping out on the nose. Plum flavors continue to the palate, joined by layers of raspberry jam, mocha, clove, and white pepper. The mid-palate is soft and creamy, framed by fine tannins and ending with a long, lush finish that will leave you wanting another sip.

Wine Enthusiast:
A well-balanced and simple Zinfandel in which the oak adds minor tones of sweetness. Find aromas and flavors of fresh and dried fruits, including black cherry, fig, and plum alongside those oak notes of cacao and toasted wood. STACY BRISCOE
