Grown as a field blend planted to about 92% Zin and 8% Petite Sirah, we actually pick these varietals separate and ferment separately as well. This gives us better control over the proportions to create the very best blend. Grown on our steep hillside vineyard, these vines toil for nutrients and water, and the result is tiny berries which create a very complex, rich and well-structured wine.
French and American oak barrels - 12 months aging.
