Deep, floral dark cherry and black pepper begin this journey. Boysenberry, cedar and allspice burst onto the scene while sage/anise mix it up. The blend of 89% Zin and 11% Sangiovese finishes long and juicy with fresh raspberry jam and fine black pepper.
Each vintage, we blend this wine from Zinfandel grown in three different appellations in Sonoma County and add a little Sangiovese from Alexander Valley. The zinfandel fruit comes from different appellations in Sonoma County... Russian River, Dry Creek and Sonoma Valley which makes this a truly Sonoma county wide blend of California's own, Zin. I add a bit of Sangio from Alexander Valley to layer the berry and spice with a similarly thin-skinned variety.
