2017 Estate Zinfandel, Hawley Vineyard 3L Double Magnum
DOUBLE GOLD - American Fine Wine Competition
GOLD - SF Chronicle Wine Competition
90 Points - CA Grapevine Review
This wine is a blend of 94% Zinfandel and 6% Petite Sirah grown organically on our steep hillside vineyard. Our vines produce tiny berries with concentrated flavors, structure and acidity.
Dark raspberry, ripe blackberry, pepper, structured tannin.
"Medium to medium-dark ruby; deep, ripe, fragrant, raspberry and blackberry fruit aroma; full body; deep, tight, briary, peppery, dark berry fruit flavors with a rich mouthfeel, though currently a bit rough on the finish; full tannin; lingering aftertaste. Will benefit from several more years of bottle aging. Very highly recommended." - CA Grapevine Review, September 2019 Issue
Only 6 Double Magnums bottled!
Aged 18 months on American and French oak. Planted as a field blend of Zinfandel and Petite Sirah, but picked separately in order to control the blend.
