Our beautiful hillside estate in the northwest corner of Dry Creek Valley uses vines planted in 1915 to produce one of the most complex and appealing zinfandels. Beginning with its elegant nose of red raspberry, clove, and vanilla aromas, the wine is a treat from start to finish. In the mouth, the wine seduces your palate with sweet raspberry fruit, chocolate, coffee, and a wonderful spicy finish. Drink this wine right now, or save it for drinking through 2009. Either way, you'll be enjoying one of our favorite wines from one of the top zinfandel-growing regions in the world.
