Zinfandel 2011 750ml

Zinfandel 2011 750ml
Our 2011 Estate Zinfandel wine is produced from four acres of Zinfandel grapes grown and hand-tended on our Calistoga Estate vineyard.  Ignacio Blancas, winemaker, tends the four acres of Old Vine zinfandel carefully all year, and hand selects only the very best grape clusters at harvest time.   The wine is made in small lots and aged in a combination of French and American Oak barrels for 18 months.  Production is limited to 700 cases per year.  Enjoy discovering the layers of complex cherry, blackberry, and spice flavors, culminating in a long supple finish.
