Once again, we present our unapologetic "defection" from the Bordeaux varietals.

The fruit for this single vineyard Zinfandel was sourced from one of our favorite sites in the Templeton Gap district. We selected the best barrels of the vintage to create this 75 case Reserve bottling. While retaining classic fruit forward Zin characteristics, the style is elegant and restrained making the wine both food friendly and easy drinking.

"Intense aromas of baked cherry meet with mint and baking spice on the nose of this bottling. The palate is medium bodied while ripe, offering cassis, milk-chocolate and mint flavors, with polished tannins adding texture." ~ Matt Kettmann, Wine Enthusiast Magazine
