Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Our 2013 vintage Zinfandel is a pulled back a touch compared to the 2012 with a polished mouth-feel that coats the palate with supple tannins. It has brambly fruit flavors and aromatics such as blueberry and boysenberry. These elements are coupled with subtle notes of white pepper, dried herbs, vanilla bean and sweet Christmas spices.
Winemaker's Notes
This is our third vintage from Cedarville Vineyard, which is farmed organically by Jonathan and Susan Lachs. 2013 was a beautifully balanced vintage with respect to Zinfandel. We had no issues during the drought stricken vintage likely due to the hearty and resilient nature of this varietal. It spent 18 months in French oak (15% new) on its gross lees prior to being bottled unfined and unfiltered.
