Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
One whiff, and you’ll sense the power lurking in this big Zinfandel. Deep garnet color,with black candied fruit and hints of cinnamon spice in the aroma. Upon tasting this wine you’ll be blown away by the bold taste and lush tannins that leave you with a Vapor Trail of flavor.
Vineyard Notes
The grapes that went into this wine came from the Shenandoah Valley of the Sierra foothills in Amador County. The vineyards were farmed by Ken Deaver. Ken’s Zinfandel vines are head trained and the soil is ‘Sierra loam’.
Winemaker Notes
Grapes were hand-picked in the morning and gently sorted and transferred back to bins for cold soak. Must was inoculated and fermentation was done in temperature controlled stainless steel tank and was pumped over in regular intervals. Aged in 35% new American oak barrels as well French Oak barrels, the balance was done in neutral oak barrels.
