2007 Zinfandel



"Parcel 31"



Tasting Notes
The grapes for our Parcel 31 Zinfandel were chosen from 3 different appellations to showcase the varying complexity and flavor characteristics unique to each area. All of the fruit was sourced from old vines, which we believe adds a depth of complexity not found in younger vineyards.


All vineyard lots were kept separated and each was fermented and aged separately. Cooperage was varied based upon vineyard site and appellation. Two months prior to bottling the wines were re-evaluated and blended.


The 2007 Parcel 31 Zinfandel is the quintessential Zinfandel. It offers an explosive bouquet of blackberries, currants, crushed rocks and is backed up by enormous body, great purity and tremendous concentration. Layer upon layer of blackberry and raspberry coat the palate. This wine is drinking fabulously now and will only improve with age.
