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

This old vineyard continues to produce wines that are not only exotic and rich, but full of tension, thus staying fresh, while showing off pure richness and depth.  A wine of deep garnet /  black cherry color with warm raspberry, white and red peppercorns, crème de cassis and brambly black cherry fill the aromas. A full- bodied wine that stays light on its feet, while showcasing a mix of black berry, red raspberry, sarsaparilla and warm cinnamon stick.

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.
