Zinfandel, Petite Syrah, and Carignane were interplanted, picked together, and vinted into a deep, dark, red wine.
Varietal 85% Zinfandel, 10% Petite Syrah and 5% Carignane Winemaking Notes The three varieties that make up this field blend were, as always, picked and fermented together in open bins, and aged in seasoned barrels, providing an ever so subtle touch of oak.
Tasting Notes The wine produced is elegant, spicy, full bodied and with excellent nose. It is a BIG, robust wine but with balanced acidity that makes it a perfect pairing with rich, well-flavored foods. It will age well. John cautions, “Excessive consumption of this wine may cause Zinfomania.”
