2018 Zinfandel
, Napa Valley

Big & Jammy!  Picked from old vines in Chiles Valley, this Zinfandel is a big, fruit-driven exuberant wine.  Deep garnet in color, with a ruby core.  The nose shows blackberry, blueberry, cassis, tree bark, dried violets, sweet spice, graphite and black pepper.  The palate is medium to full bodied with a long vibrant finish.  Pair with anything from the meat aisle, from BBQ pork ribs, leg of lamb or big, hearty meals.

The Zinfandel grapes were harvested by hand, then destemmed and manually sorted. Fermentation on the skins for fuller extraction of color, aroma and flavor. The wine was then aged in 1/3 new Hungarian oak and 2/3 neutral oak barrels.

Chiles Valley, Napa Valley
The Chiles Valley is nestled in the Vaca Mountains above the northeast side of the Napa Valley. The appellation has a cooler climate than the main Napa Valley floor due to elevations of 600–1200 feet as well as a cooling breeze from the Pacific Ocean.  Classic 'big red' Californian varieties like Zinfandel, have proved very successful at this location.
