2018 Zinfandel

(1 customer review)


Santa Ynez Vineyard, Happy Canyon of Santa Barbara County – 14.5% abv   

Composition: 100% Zinfandel  

Nose (aromas): fresh plum, underbrush, cherry preserves, clove spice

Flavor (palate): strawberry rhubarb, baking spice, graham cracker

Winemaker’s Notes: Even in its relatively youthful stage, this Zin will impress with its elegant acidity, smooth tannins, and well balanced fruit to spice ratio. Since Zinfandel can pair with almost any food, it is a versatile wine and a crowd pleaser, perfect for the cooler weather of Fall and Winter. Pair it with braised meats, briskets and stews, vegetarian soups and casseroles, Indian spice dishes, or aged cheeses. An unctuous beauty!

Ageing potential: Now- 2027

Additional Notes: This is our first ever Zinfandel sourced from Santa Barbara County (as opposed to Paso Robles), and we are thrilled! It’s a great example of a cooler growing climate that allows for the development of beautiful fresh red fruit and acidity, alongside the warm spice profile found in Zins. We were hoping to showcase those differences in climate AND to offer a Zin that sits a little bit outside of the box, but is still a star!

    Don’t wait until 2027. We had a sip at a tasting in Hollywood recently and had to get a bottle. Regret not getting more at the time. Oh well. Just have to order a few.
