2016 Jack Rabbit Vineyard Zinfandel
From the iconic Jack Rabbit Flat Vineyard, we are blessed to work with this beautiful fruit. Aged in 20% new French oak 500L puncheons for 20 months, the wine is dark with aromas that are simply sublime. You’ll find tarragon, all spice, blackberry, quince paste, nutmeg and hints of caramel all woven together in a seamless tapestry that is enticing and mouthwatering. Tension and balance first come to mind when tasting this broad shouldered beauty. Flavors of blackberry and cloves are hemmed into the framework of ultra-fine tannins making it a wine of considerable depth and a fine contender for longer term aging. Drink now thru 2030.
