Main Grape:Zinfandel & Primitivo
The 2011 vintage started off cool and damp but with little to no frost. Late rains continued until July with almost two inches of rain in the month of June. The end of the rainy season led to a cool weather pattern for most of the summer with average high temperatures around 80 degrees for both July and August. The heat finally returned in September with one six-day stretch of temperatures in the 90s exactly what the vintage needed. They harvested this Zinfandel in late September into early October under ideal conditions. The wine is fresh with bright berry fruit with peppery jamminess. There are still lush and rich undertones that make this wine a classic but more restrained Zinfandel. Amazing with (but certainly not restricted to!) deep fried goats cheese.
