Description

We co-fermented the Zinfandel with a touch of Petite Sirah to add complexity and structure and then aged the wine in large oak casks so the flavors are well integrated but not overwhelmed by oak. This food-friendly Zinfandel’s fresh flavors of ripe blackberries, black cherries and a hint of black pepper on the long finish are the perfect match for just about any grilled meat with barbecue sauce, sausage pizza and lasagna.

Vineyard: Miljenko's Vineyard, Calistoga

Our 34-acre vineyard above Calistoga is the warmest of our five vineyards and the sole source of our Zinfandel.  Its northeast exposure catches abundant morning sun but is shadedfromthehot, late afternoon sun and combined with the vineyard's gavelly loam soils, creates the perfect spot to grow this varietal.
