Our Zinfandel vines are grown in thin, red mountaintop soils and produce grapes of exceptionally concentrated flavors.
With rich blackberry and cherry notes, this wines is an excellent complement to barbecued or pulled pork and tomato based pasta dishes.
Moderate temperatures with no appreciable rainfall throughout the ripening season allowed the grapes to fully develop exceptionally concentrated flavors.
