Napa Valley Zinfandel

2017 Napa Valley


This rich, black fruit driven wine presents integrated ripeness, texture and complexity. Brambly blackberry and black cherry are accentuated by smatterings of crushed pepper and cinnamon on the full-bodied palate. The perfect amount of acid and tannin balance out the concentrated palate, leading to an expansive finish.

Napa Valley

Our Napa Valley collection sources grapes from our four vineyards, and some from our favorite neighbors, including Beckstoffer, Red Barn, Quarry, and Sangiacomo. Our Napa Valley Cabernet, Chardonnay, and Pinot Noir are all aged in French oak barrels, with one-third in new barrels, one-third in once-used barrels, and one-third in twice-used barrels, for balance.
