A blend of four distinct vineyards in the Sierra Foothills’ El Dorado appellation, the essence of this 2016 Zinfandel is both the structure of the mountain fruit and the earthy elegance of the terroir. This youthful wine offers aromas of intense Bing cherry fruit, raspberry freshness, and hints of white pepper and savory spices. The palate is refined and focused with flavors of ripe cherry and bright blackberry, balanced with earthiness, a touch of pepper and clove spice on the finish.
