Product Description:

From the Winemakers' Website: Our first red wine release from the 2017 vintage is here. After a wet winter that ended the recent drought cycle, a normal crop load & steady harvest weather paved the way for beautifully balanced fruit for our 2017 Zinfandel. This wine comes from three separate blocks at our estate Margarita Vineyard, with each contributing to a larger sense of character & complexity in the finished wine. Block 49D sets the tone with jammy dark fruit flavors derived from hilltop exposures, while the lower Block 49A contributes a dimension of red fruit & spice. Block 48 splits the difference between red & black fruits with its own spicy nuances. After fermentation & light pressing, the individual lots were racked to a combination of French (44%), American (53%) & Hungarian (3%) oak barrels (comprised of 25% new oak), where they aged for 18 months prior to blending & bottling. Small lots of Petit Verdot (5%) & Petite Sirah (5%) were incorporated into the final blend for added color, depth & structure. The result is a wine that presents bright boysenberry aromas with hints of sandalwood & vanilla. A juicy, jammy texture is loaded with generous flavors of wild raspberry, black cherry, plum, mocha & cedar. Spicy black pepper notes join mouthwatering acidity on a beautifully balanced finish. The juicy, spicy character of the 2017 Zinfandel is a perfect match for fine comfort foods, including grilled chicken flatbread, Italian sausages, Santa Maria-style tri-tip & Pepper Jack cheeseburgers".
