Nose

Notes of white pepper, herb, allspice, and raspberry.

Palate

Aromas lead to similar flavors in a lively and refreshing structure not often seen in this variety. This is an easy, palatable ode to classic Zinfandel!

Growing Conditions

After the marvelous 2012 vintage, we were rewarded again in 2013, with a nearly perfect growing season, and a long ripening period as well. I refer to it a “leisurely” harvest, not forced to pick for fear of rain or extreme heat. When the winemaker is relaxed, so is the wine! Vineyards: Fore Family Vineyard
