Our Biodynamic Estate Vineyard produced truly incredible Zinfandel this vintage. The canopy was literally the healthiest and most prolific that we had ever seen! What resulted was robust phenolic development that expressed itself in the fruit as incredible concentration and poise.
Blackberry, elderberry jam, and clove flood aromatics. Notes of Maraschino cherry, orange peel, jam, and grape Otter Pops fill out the palate. The mid-palate is so complex and full-bodied, but tannins are smooth and an elevated balance persists. This definitely isn’t your Grandmother’s Zinfandel! Powerful yet elegant (think Simone Biles), this wine will hold her own against whoever is brave enough to take her on toe-to-toe.
