Variety: 96% zinfandel 4% syrah
Sensory Notes: This beautifully structured wine offers a gorgeous dark, layered, complex nose of juicy blackberries. With layers of earth and fruit underscoring flavors of mocha, coco powder and dark cherry. Extremely balanced and creamy on the palate, but also, rich and mouth-filling, it draws to a long, satisfying conclusion.
Vineyard Notes: The Rocky Ridge Vineyard is perched high above Lake Sonoma and the surrounding hills. Its high elevation, along with the thin, rocky soils that give this area its name, provide an excellent location for growing intense, low-yielding grapevines. The Westphall vineyard in the Rockpile AVA produces smaller clusters with excellent varietal characteristics.
Cellar Recommendations: Enjoy this wine through 2026.
