Our 2018 Napa Valley Zinfandel offers aromas of boysenberry, white pepper and perfume. On the palate, rich flavors of black cherry are enhanced by brown sugar and nutmeg. The bold fruit and subtle spice make for a fresh and long finish.
The 2018 vintage was one fo the most ideal in the Napa Valley. We were all surprised by just how many clusters the vines produced and had to be extra cautious about vines producing too much fruit. Mild weather throughout the growing season gently encouraged the vines to fully ripen the grapes and pack them full of flavor. Frequent spring rains ensured the vines had enough water to grow the berries to full size and led to even more fruit than usual. Thankfully the fall rains held off until very late this year and we were able to wait until all of the fruit ripened to its fullest. This moderate weather and long ripening time was fantastic for developing smooth, flavorful and exquisitely balanced wines.
