Tasting Notes

The 2016 vintage has a dark violet hue owed, in part, to the Petite Sirah. The first whiff entices with black cherry, vanilla bean, woodspice, and fresh rosemary. The palate is tightly wound with balanced acidity that perfectly weaves throughout this full-bodied wine.

The meat of the matter is The Cleaver wine's palate, with its brilliant mixture of freshly-picked dark fruit flavors, like plum and blackberry, as well as a hint of dark Baker’s chocolate. This Amador County Zinfandel has a smooth, juicy mouthfeel that makes it so food-friendly. The tannins in this wine are silky with a delicate nuance expressed from French oak barrel aging.
