Tasting Notes

A Zinfandel with intricate layers and sophistication, the 2016 Special Reserve Grandpère Zinfandel is an elegant wine with the well-rounded, youthful tannins, weight and structure that our Estate vineyard has become known for. You are greeted by bright aromas of ripe black cherry, dusty cocoa, cardamom and cedar that are complimented by secondary hints of fresh raspberry jam and toasted French oak. The delightful aromas lead you to an elegant and vivacious palate that is framed by fresh summer strawberry, cranberry, warm baking spices and hints of white pepper that linger for a long, luxurious finish. The polite yet complex structure along with the well-balanced acidity makes this Zinfandel another cellar worthy candidate in our portfolio. It is ready to drink now but  it will also age gracefully for the next 10 years.
