Jason-Stephens’ 2009 Zinfandel was produced at the winery’s estate vineyard in the Santa Clara Valley, an AVA running south-southeast from the southern end of San Francisco Bay in Northern California. This 2009 Zinfandel is a break from the norm in today’s market - made with a focus on bright fruit flavors rather than the commonly characteristic prune or raisin flavors found in many Zinfandels. To achieve this, Jason- Stephens Winery picks their Zinfandel fruit earlier than most to maintain the fruit aspects of the grape and to ensure a better balance of acidity, fruit flavors and tannins. Any ‘raisined’ grapes are also removed during a sorting system, to further promote a brightly flavored end result.

Dark purple in color, the Jason-Stephens’ 2009 Zinfandel offers fresh raspberry aromas with rich, fruity flavors, a full body, and smooth texture. Jason- Stephens’ mission is to handcraft a stand out Zinfandel that is a consistent expression of Santa Clara’s distinctive terrior and represents the true character of the grape flavor.
