Description

The Private Reserve wines are the ultimate wines within the portfolio, limited in production, sourced from the finest vineyards in Sonoma County, from appellations best suited for a specific varietal given the dramatic diversity in climatic and soil conditions across the County.

Tasting Notes
Aroma: 

Our 2017 Private Reserve Zinfandel opens with juicy aromas of plum and blackberry with a delicate hint of rose petals.

Palate: 

On the palate, flavors of boysenberry and strawberry and are balanced by notes of honey, brown sugar and toasted oak. This medium to full bodied wine features fine-grain tannins, well-balanced acid and a spreading finish.  

Winemaking
Vintage Notes: 

The Private Reserve Zinfandel was sourced from the warmer portion of Sonoma Valley where the afternoons reach high temperatures during the growing season for extended periods of time and result in a wine with juicy, rich flavors. The grapes for our 2017 vintage come from several old vineyards within Sonoma Valley including Monte Rosso and Richard’s vineyard.
