    Tasting Notes:

    Ruby red in color with setaceous accents, this Zin captures your palate with layers of vine ripened fruit, hints of spice with a touch of toasty oak. Distinctive and rich with a well-defined structure and graceful finish, this wine will continue to evolve both in your glass and in your cellar!

    Harvest Notes:

    A record rainfall ended our drought and brought huge relief to both farmers and vines! Summer gave us above average temperatures but we saw a cooler and foggy August slow down the vines and extend hang time. Then on August 26th a long heat wave set in with temperatures exceeding 100 degrees for 12 days. This was a huge challenge for the thin skinned Zin grape and the rush was on to harvest as fast as we possibly could.
