Winemaker Notes

This enticing Sonoma County wine highlights a bright, red-fruit and spice expression of Zinfandel. The aromas are ripe and appealing, offering layers of strawberry jam, raspberry and sweet vanilla, as well as hints of chocolate-covered cherries and white pepper. On the palate, the entry is full and balanced, with lovely cranberry notes supported by the subtle influence of fine oak.

Wine & Spirits

Dark tones of iodine, sassafras and blackberries meld in this zin’s cool, spicy intensity. The texture is lean and supple, the flavors long. For grilled lamb chops.

Although Cabernet has many important outposts throughout the wine world, nowhere else has it achieved such success (and, at the highest end, commanded such lofty prices) than in Napa. Here, it is responsible for bold, opulent, and dark-fruited wines with grippy tannins and a healthy dose of alcohol. The best examples can age for decades. Each of Napa’s smaller sub-AVAs imparts a different character to Cabernet, such as [Rutherford’s] famous dust or [Stags Leap District's] tart cherry flavors.
