    ABV %:

    Creating a harmonious, non-angular wine with these two varietals is more than just a balancing act. As the Zinfandel and Syrah grapes are brought in, each block is fermented separately. Once fermentation is complete, the wine is blended before being put in barrel to marry together and age.

    Deep garnet in color with violet highlights. The nose has brooding aromas of dark fruits and black tea with an enticing hint of white pepper. On the palate, the juicy entrance leads to nice midweight density and mouth-filling texture. The finish is long, balanced and satiating.

    Our vineyards lay between the Dry Creek and Russian Rivers, warmed throughout the long days, and cooled at night when the fog creeps up the Russian River. Our Zinfandel comes from both old vines (50+ years) and mature plantings (12+ years). The vines thrive in the rocky, hillside soils of Northern Dry Creek Valley. Our Syrah vines are also mature plantings (12+ years) in their prime and flourishing in the sandy, loamy soils of Southern Dry Creek Valley. This wine is aged 18 months in French Oak, 30% new. The long ageing allows the two competing varietals to marry well and balance out one another, develop tannin, and build structure.

    Blend: 50% Zinfandel, 50% Syrah

    The Alcohol By Volume / ABV percentage reported is meant to be a general guideline given fluctuations in production, sometimes ABV is reported as a range (ex. 12.5% - 13.5%), etc.

    Wines labeled as "highly rated" are wines that at some point, including prior vintages, received excellent reviews and scores/points from established critics (and we do our best to report the specific vintage reviewed in the product description notes). It is meant to indicate (as a general guide) that the wine producer received accolades for that product for convenient filtering when browsing and searching.
