About

89-90

"The 2015 Red Field Blend is a Zinfandel-based wine with lovely up front fruit. Drink it over the next few years, while the flavors remain juicy and vibrant."

90 Wine Enthusiast

"Made by David Ramey, this blend of 80% Zinfandel, 11% Alicante and 9% Petite Sirah impresses in its fruit-forward approachability and all-around likability. Earthy, it teases in dark cherry, vanilla and milk-chocolate flavors, the texture smoothly etched in fine leather."

Product Description:

Cooler, wetter weather in spring months slowed development, however, leading to a challenging, extended bloom period. The resulting uneven fruit set translated to a small crop and smaller berries with very concentrated flavors. Weather throughout the summer growing season was consistently warm, bringing on a very early harvest. winemaking Native yeast, 19-day fermentation and maceration. Pressed and barrelled down before native malolactic fermentation. Aged sur lies in neutral oak barrels for 14 months; bottled unfiltered.
