2016 Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel
Always on the hunt for new, exciting vineyards, when we came across the LeVois Vineyard in Dry Creek, we knew we had found something profoundly special. A beautifully terraced vineyard very close to Lake Sonoma, Le Vois sits at an elevation of 950 ft in an amphitheater configuration which allows for a range of afternoon sun exposures and ensures a wine with great complexity and a range of flavors.
Our inaugural vintage, the 2016 brings together everything you'd expect from Dry Creek Valley. Brilliant ruby in color, fresh aromas of summer peaches, vanilla, and cinnamon entice while flavors of ripe fruit, caramel, and blackberry jam keep you coming back for more. Great length and richness on the finish allow for a long, slow savoring of the wine.
2014 Russian River Valley Zinfandel
Helen and Charles Bacigalupi started farming their precious old vine grapes in the Russian River Valley in 1956. The Bacigalupis were about 50 years ahead of the sustainable agriculture movement, avoiding chemicals and tilling and then training vines as high as four feet above the ground to improve air circulation. Zin from this vineyard is rare, natural and absolutely perfect. We think you’ll agree.
Stunningly ruby red in color, this wine serves up really elegant raspberry and blueberry aromas right off the bat. Across the palate, bright red fruit flavors of raspberry, strawberry and some blackberry and complemented with more complex notes of stone and vanilla. Wonderfully balanced, with a lingering finish.
2013 Calistoga Zinfandel
Calistoga is one prime spot for some amazing Zin and in 2013 the brutally hot summer days followed by frigid nights made for some of the most concentrated fruit we could ask for. Which means the vines created some bold, delectable flavors are sure to impress your palate. From the first whiff your nose is filled with sweet, ripe blackberry jam and a little hint of vanilla. Then your palate gets coated with flavors of that deliciously sticky berry jam, followed by smooth, rich dark chocolate that lingers with great intensity.
