Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
Appellation: Yountville, Napa Valley
Production Notes
Composition 69% Zinfandel, 31% Cabernet Sauvignon Aging & Oak 100% French oak 50% new
Winemaker Notes
· The aromatics are ripe and inviting, with layers of raspberry jam, chocolate-covered cherries and clove, all underscored by subtler notes of vanilla and sweet cedar · A full, rich jammy entry offers immediate pleasure, with rich milk chocolate flavors supporting a juicy mid-palate · The finish is long, textured and sophisticated, with lingering flavors of tobacco, dried sage and lavender
Production
· 2009 presented certain challenges—from early shatter to late-season rain · We responded with site-specific techniques that included aggressive leafing, an early thinning protocol and a heavy field sort to select only the most desirable grapes · Attention to detail in the vineyards, and during harvest and sorting, yielded high quality fruit

I definitely get the raspberry they describe, good full bodied wine. Highly recommend this 2009 blend.

This wine is great! It's has a nice bite when it first hits your tongue, then a really smooth finish, and an awesome after taste!
