Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
For the 2009 vintage we only made five barrels, and due to the multiple varietals planted over 100-years ago, there isn't another Zinfandel like it. The nose is very floral with white flowers, honeysuckle, black currant and sage. Red and black fruits dominate the palate with some dusty Zinfandel tannin and acidity adding both power and zip to the long finish, a bold reminder of why Michael just can't resist farming these historic old vines. Incredible depth and complexity. Black fruit, cola, cinnamon, nutmeg, caramel and cloves.
