Winemaker's Notes:

Fred first became known for Zinfandel from his father’s Alexander Valley vineyard, and now his careful hand with Pinot Noir from the Russian River and Sonoma County has quietly gained attention and a steady following. That same attention has made Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Syrah that exemplify the bounty of Sonoma County vineyards. Read less

Clean and crisp, with bright red cherry, cranberry, great balance and good acidity. Not the big jammy kind of zin but refined and restrained like most of Fred's wines - excellent.
