2014 Hillside Zinfandel - Estate

Product Image

Sonoma County’s Dry Creek Valley is world renown as the premier Zinfandel growing area. The grapes for our 2014 Hillside Zinfandel were grown in the estate vineyard located next to our tasting room.  After harvest, the clusters are gently destemmed and then filled into stainless steel tanks. Preceding the fermentation is a 3-5 day cold soak. The must is then inoculated with yeast then mixed 2-3 times per day to extract flavors, color, and tannin from the skins. After pressing, the new wine is filled into 75% new Hungarianand American oak barrels and aged for approximately 16 months. This wine is full bodied and well balanced. Flavors of licorice, pepper and berry lend to a silky mouth feel, spicy middle and a pleasant, rich finish.  Excellent paired with a loin pork roast or your favorite tomato based pasta dish.
