Winemaker's Notes:

The grapes were hand harvested and hand sorted to ensure the optimal quality of fruit went into the final blend. The grapes were de-stemmed and gently crushed, yielding 40% whole berries. The grapes were cold soaked for two to three days at temperatures not exceeding 60°F to add color and complexity, followed by a 10 to 14 day fermentation period where the temperature did not exceed 88°F. The wine was aged over nine months in oak barrels, imparting nuances of vanilla and toasted coconut.

Tasting Notes:

This is an Old Vine Zinfandel at its essence. The sophisticated Toreador captures the true varietal character of Monte Rosso Zinfandel with expressive flavors and aromas of black raspberry, ripe plum jam and black cherry, surrounded by rich tannins and a peppery, clove spice that are supple on the palate. Hints of dark chocolate and nuances of vanilla from the oak influence linger in a long and lasting finish. This elegantly concentrated Zinfandel can be enjoyed now, but will also age well over the next ten years.
