2015 Cassata Vineyard Zinfandel

Brambly and dark chocolate covered black cherries and plummy notes, that show case a touch of grilled meats and clay pot aromas. The palate is deep, rich and extraordinarily endowed from the front of the palate to the richness of the mid palate and finish. Black cherry and freshly crushed black and red peppercorns are the high light with chocolate and vanilla bean notes. A total sensorial experience!

92 Pts Jeb Dunnuck The 2015 Zinfandel Cassatta Vineyard is another Sonoma Valley release. This beauty leads with its fruit and offers loads of currants, plums, blueberry, and earthy spice characteristics, full body, a rounded, voluptuous style, and beautiful purity. It gains complexity with time in the glass and, as with all of Jeff's wines, it's beautifully balanced.
