    Winemaker's Notes:

    We grow our Zinfandel at our vineyard in Calistoga, which is certified organic and Biodynamic®. Nestled in the northern tip of Napa Valley, the vineyard's gravelly loam provides excellent drainage and the cloudless days and cool nighttime temperatures are perfect for sun-loving Zinfandel. The vines are head pruned to protect the grapes from sunburn. All of these features combine to produce concentrated, complex flavors in the wine.

    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. Pure Zinfandel flavors of strawberries, raspberries and a hint of dried sage make this wine the perfect match for grilled steak, smoked brisket and pasta or pizza topped with tomato sauce.

    Critical Acclaim:

    This wine's gentle richness frames floral zin flavors of red raspberry and crushed red peppercorn. It's tightly formed while maintaining that textural caress. For grilled lamb.
