This is the longest, continuous zinfandel production, beginning with 1966. Each growing season, though different, has given the wine a consistent character and quality. A dry winter and spring stressed the vines, limiting yields and concentrating flavors. Enjoyable now, this excellent wine will develop more complexity over the next fifteen years.
Ruby-garnet in color with aromas of dark plum, black cherry, baking spices, cola, wet gravel, toasted oak, violets and lavender. A full-bodied entry with bold and dark fruit leads to a layered and complex mid-palate with fine-grained tannins. Natural acidity balances the wine, creating a long, juicy finish.
