Zinfandel is the Tres Sabores Vineyard’s signature grape, delivering distinctive and balanced food-friendly wines that are very different from the jammy, heavily-oaked Zins which are so common today. The nose here offers fresh cherries and berries, huckleberry, white nectarine and sweet herbs with just a hint of vanilla. In the mouth, it’s dry and medium-bodied with moderate tannins, very fine and lightly grippy. Flavors include cherry, dark berries, cocoa, coconut and spice. 100% Zinfandel. French and American oak, mostly neutral. 500 cases. 90 points

Winemaker's Notes:

You will be delightfully surprised by the rich elegance in this wine. The Rutherford Bench, classic "Cabernet Country" also turns out to be a pretty splendid place to grow and make Zinfandel. Our 2011 wine shines with all of the sumptuous berry-forward aromas and spicy, black-pepper, white-pepper, Aleppo-pepper flavors one would hope for in a Zinfandel. We picked the eight acres of 38 year-old vines in small sections over four dates and fermented each lot in 3/4-ton bins. About half of the lots were allowed to ferment spontaneously (a practice these grapes love). All of the wine was aged for 21 months in 30% new oak barrels; French (with a handful of American). A wine with a cultured taste and a capacious soul. 500 cases made. Viticulture: Certified organically grown, dry-farmed
