Zinfandel 2019

2018 Vintage Zinfandel

Zinfandel 2019This product is from the Organically Farmed Collection

Zinfandel is inextricably tied to Mendocino and stands as a tribute to the rugged Italians who settled this county and the remarkably rustic wines they created. Our Zinfandel is a little more elegant and balanced than those wines, but undeniably Mendocino. We try not to manipulate the wine too much, mainly because the fruit from our exceptional organic vineyards doesn’t require it. We do add a little Petite Sirah for added complexity.

This Zinfandel offers aromas of blueberry, black stone fruit and black pepper. Polished tannins and flavors of berries, vanilla, black pepper and toasty oak lead to an elegant, balanced and rich long finish.

92 Points, 2017 Vintage

The SOMM Journal, October 2019 Issue
Showcasing the potential of organic fruit for this variety, this expression manifests ripe, sweet boysenberry and dark chocolate through its aromatics. Both juicy and chewy, the palate features grainy tannins and rich, perfumed blue fruit; mocha sets in passionately on the mid-palate. Satin-textured and elegant, the finish sends back scents and flavors of black pepper, vanilla, and toast.

Wine Enthusiast, September 2017 Issue

Beautiful black-cherry aromas and flavors make this wine direct and focused. A slightly gripping texture of fine-grained tannins and good acidity keeps the mouthfeel lively. It has a wonderful sense of purity and focus.
