The vineyard in Calistoga is the sole source of Zinfandel for this wine. It is co-fermented with a touch of Petite Sirah to add complexity and structure and then aged in large French oak casks so the flavours are well integrated but not overwhelmed by oak.
"Fresh and earthy, despite a complete embrace of ripeness, this complex red is lovely and memorable in a constructed blur of dried herb, wild strawberry and vanilla. The oak is integrated and supportive, helping to echo a delightful nuance of white pepper." 93 points, Wine Enthusiast
