Year in and year out this wine is the one that always mystifies me. I look at the luxurious black red color that looks like no other Zinfandel that I have ever had, and then one swirl and the aromas are just as mysterious as its color. In a blind tasting this wine always reminds me of what a potential blend of a Cote Rôtie and a Syrah from Chateauneuf du Pape would be if they were blended together.
This wine showcases black cherry, well-aged meats at a butcher shop, dark chocolate, cracked pepper, Australian black licorice and a touch of lavender. This wine is such a reflection of the 55° amphitheater designed vineyard that was planted in solid volcanic rock. To say its lush or unctuous on the palate, doesn’t do it justice. This wine is complete from aromatics to its pure decadent finish!
Terroir - this site is pure volcanic rock, a 55° slope vineyard planted in an amphitheater arrangement, with its big patch of lavender in the middle of the vines. All it takes is one look at this site and you know that something extraordinary will come from it. It's most Northern Rhone style Zinfandel I have ever tasted. It constantly amazes me every time I open a bottle, how beautiful this wine is and how as it ages gains layers and layers of complexity.
