Boeger Walker Zinfandel

Our wine makers, Justin and Byron, are thrilled to finally release the much anticipated 2015 Walker Zinfandel in the tasting room this weekend. With ample tannins in this vintage the guys felt it needed some extra time in the barrel to soften the edges. Their patience is your benefit as you'll see when you sample this wine- our cult favorite Zin!

Winemaker Notes

This Zinfandel is the product of a relationship with the Walker Vineyard that dates back to 1980. Overlooking the north fork of the Consumnes River at 2100 feet elevation, this vineyard has consistently produced excellent fruit with a distinctive peppery spice to it. The opulent, jammy aromas on the nose are tempered by subtle notes of tobacco leaf and dried fruit. Polished tannins and lingering acidity give freshness and structure to the full bodied, smooth palate.
