Our Zinfandel comes from Windsor Oaks Vineyard, just south of Healdsburg, California. This vineyard splits itself between Russian River and Chalk Hill, with the Zinfandel growing on the lower vineyard blocks. In the last several years, the Sonoma region experienced significant drought, resulting in dense clusters with intense dark fruit and pepper flavors that hold hints of leather and smoke. We age our Zinfandel in both new and older French oak barrels for additional wine structure and graceful aging.
The grapes for our Reserve Zinfandel come from the carefully managed Tombs Creek Vineyard, high up in the mountainous area west of Geyserville, California, just past Rockpile about midway to the Pacific coast.

Our Reserve Zinfandel is rich with raspberry jam, plum, rich dark fruit, and pepper on the finish. We age our Zinfandel in both new and older French oak barrels for additional wine structure and graceful aging.
