This small lot of Zinfandel was selected out of our various lots of purchased fruit as an exceptional expression of Sierra Foothills Zinfandel. Grown at 3000 feet elevation, this particular Zinfandel exhibits a wide complement of bright, herbal and savory aromas to complement Zin’s typical fruitiness. Well-structured for a Zinfandel, the firm tannins provide mouth filling richness and age-worthiness. This wine is our first collaborative effort with the Rosa Canina vineyard in Camino, California, and is a promising example of things to come.
