Winner, winner!  Chicken dinner!  Here is a “county” wine that is so good that we must look like fools for not slapping “reserve” on the label and charging twice as much.  Seriously.  What makes it so good?  For starters, 95% of this wine is composed of vineyards planted between 1895 and 1934.  And these aren’t just any old vineyards.  These are vineyards like Carlisle, Demostene, Kirschenmann, Montafi, Pagani, and Papera.   First class stuff!  In our 19 vintages, I cannot recall a Sonoma County Zinfandel I’ve liked more.  Please don’t miss it.

Sonoma County Zinfandel

Tasting Note:

Medium to medium-dark ruby-garnet.  Hi-toned aromas of red cherries, blood orange, and briar.  Impeccably balanced with flavors of cherry liqueur, baking spices, and earth.  While mouth coating, lively acidity and silky tannins keep the wine fresh and exhilarating.  Enjoy from release through 2027.
