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.

Tasting Panel, June 2021 Issue
The addition of Petite Sirah, Syrah, and other red grapes to this 80% Zinfandel made with organic grapes contributes seasoning and layers of flavors. While the sweetness of summer plum and black cherry is dense and intense, it’s balanced by vibrant acidity. Mocha notes play a role in calming the tannins, introducing a supple nature on the finish.
