Many thoughts arise when a winemaker gazes at a Field of Vines ("Pra Vinera"). They remember past struggles and past triumphs. They remember techniques that brought flavors to their peak. Their gaze takes in the vineyard's potential and ponders how best to capture the vines' offering. In many ways, to a winemaker a vineyard is a field of dreams; dreams rich with the taste of the past and hope for the future.
Our 2016 Reserve Zinfandel is the reward of a sun-drenched year that delivered exceptionally ripened blue-black fruit. A concentrated, rich and full-bodied extraction; thanks to exceptional fruit and loving care in the cellar. Increased maceration time and a higher ratio of skin-to-juice contact rewards us with an exceptional vintage and a truly remarkable profile.
Nuanced with aromatics of subtle pepper, blueberry and cassis; leading to a lush, robust palate of not-too-sweet blackberry pie with subtle herbal hints.
