Zinfandel ‘Sonoma County’, DAY

This wine is a blend of vineyards spanning the Russian River Valley, Dry Creek and Alexander Valley.

The 2015 Vintage was extraordinary for a number of reasons. Four years into a drought, vine stress among these old head trained vines was intense. The vintage was early and compact with more even-ripening than is typical for the variety. This provided us with tremendously fresh, healthy and concentrated fruit- leaving us with blessed with little to do in the cellar.

Tasting Notes

Intense, inky purple in the glass, deeply floral with heady notes of pink peppercorn on the nose. Vibrantly fresh on the palate, the wine is packed with blackberry, boysenberry and is held taut by a firm graphite structure.
