Coming off our Estate Zinfandel block, the fruit for this wine stays on the vine an additional 10 to 14 days in order to achieve additional rightness, converted into a more muscular approach than our elegant Pitts home Ranch Zin. We round this wine out with 20% old Vine Zinfandel from an ancient Vineyard we farm in the Russian River Valley.
Big, ripe black raspberry bursts onto the scene with our 2018 Savage Zin. Tea and really beautiful floral notes back up that not-so-shy fruit. There is a toasty hazelnut/roasted almond profile from the oak that dresses this monster up.
