2017 St Peter's Church Vineyard Zinfandel
2017 St Peter's Church Vineyard Zinfandel

A deep dark garnet rim to an almost mysterious black red color. Magnetic black and red fruits with a touch of savory herbs de Provence on the nose that just keeps pulling you in closer to the glass, so you don’t miss one moment of the experience. The palate is so precise, elegant and pinpoint in its balance. From the lush front palate with sweet vanillin and dark chocolate ganache, to the minerality in the mid palate and blackberry bramble in the extensive long finish. this wine has a very Provencal feel, but the soul of old vine Zinfandel.

Vineyard Notes
Jeff has worked with St. Peter's Church in Cloverdale since 1996. It's one of the best Zin vineyards ever. Planted to the St. Peter's Church Selection of Zinfandel, the 20-100 year old trellised vines are planted on the oldest U.S. vineyard on the site of a church.
