Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Our 2015 vintage of Zinfandel has a polished mouth-feel that coats the palate with supple tannins. It has brambly fruit flavors and aromatics such as blackberry, cherry, and raspberry. These elements are coupled with subtle notes of white pepper, dried herbs, cassis and vanilla bean.
Winemaker's Notes
We source this fruit from Cedarville Vineyard, which is farmed organically by Jonathan and Susan Lachs. 2015 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 (13% new) on its gross lees prior to being bottled unfined and unfiltered.
