Wine Spectator:

"Vibrant and jammy, with black cherry flambe aromas that lead to powerful flavors of boysenberry, roasted anise and smoky pepper. Tannins are ripe but dense. Drink now through 2017. 350 cases made." (09/11)

Product Description:

Vineyard:
"Planted on a beautiful rolling hillside near Occidental in 2002, Ulises took advantage of the different exposures and soil types to experiment with different clones of Pinot Noir. On the very top of the ridge there is an area of reddish soil, with southern exposure, that just cried out for Zinfandel." - Winery

Winemaker:
"When Ulises Valdez crossed the U.S. border in 1985, his goal was to work hard and make enough money to start a small business back in Mexico - perhaps as a grocery store owner. He didn't imagine that he would come to manage 1,000 acres of prime Sonoma County vineyards as the owner of a successful vineyard management company, or that his own wine would one day be served at the White House. Yet, he accomplished all of this by age 41." - Winery
