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.
