Three Wise Zins
2015 Fiddletown Zinfandel
Due to the cooler temperatures and unique soil composition, our Fiddletown Zinfandel is always bright and highly aromatic. Farmed by Ray Zanini, this tiny Fiddletown vineyard is one of our favorites and continues to impress us as it matures over time. Striking aromas of raspberries, butterscotch, and fig play first fiddle on the nose. Well-structured and possessing beautiful tension, the tannins are woven seamlessly into the network of cranberry, black cherry, and Baker’s chocolate flavors. This is easily a wine that will benefit from time in the cellar.
2015 Premier Old Vine Zinfandel
Our Premier Old Vine Zinfandel is a compilation of some of the most exceptional icon vineyards that we source from. The wine expresses itself aromatically with nuances of fresh blackberry and cranberry with ever so subtle hints of savory dried herbs. The tannin structure is finely polished, and its juicy backbone is the major player from front to back in this classic beauty. Well balanced acidity ensures it will age famously over the next several years. Drink now through 2022.
2016 California Zinfandel
We love working with California’s native varietal – Zinfandel. The 2016 vintage is juicy, bright and vibrant. Dramatically expressive aromas of dried strawberry, vanilla and bay leaf. Concentrated flavors of brambly red raspberry, dried cranberry and dusty cocoa followed by hints of black tea and dark cherry. Round on the palate, the tannins are well polished with a silky mouthfeel and beautifully framed by the wine’s natural acidity and juiciness. This is a delicious sipper either on it's own or paired with food.
