Our 2017 Family Reserve Zinfandel is a barrel selection that combines different lots of Estate Zinfandel which create a multi-layered wine with depth and complexity. Beautifully aromatic, with a thoughtful balance of rich fruit, well integrated oak, layered tannin and spice. This was a blend of two Zinfandels we made in 2017 from different blocks of our estate, harvested at varying ripeness levels. We also added a barrel of Syrah to the blend for added richness and roundness on the palate. The final blend is 88% Zin and 12% Syrah, aged in 53% new oak of various origin. The nose is spicy and brambly, with just a hint of sweet oak. The balance between fruit and spice, tannin and acidity, and oak and varietal character on the palate keeps you wanting more!
