Our Zinfandel grapes are sources from the Ryan Oaks Vineyards in Amador County, CA which has become renowned for producing high end Zinfandels that are big and juicy.  The unique climate, terroir, and soils in this foothill region of the Sierra Nevada mountain range combine to create grapes that are ideal for making fruit forward Zinfandels that are balanced and drinkable.

Fermented with Rockpile yeast and aged in Seguin Meroe hybrid barrels made of American oak staves and French oak heads, this wine is sure to a great blend of flavors and aromas that pair nicely with braised meats and hardy fare.

 

Decanting

We are passionate believers in taking time to decant our wines, both young and old, from Chardonnay to Zinfandel. For older vintages or unfiltered wines, we recommend standing the wine bottle upright for some time prior to opening it to allow any possible sediment to slowly settle at the bottom of the bottle. This allows for the wine to later be cleanly poured into a decanter or glass free of sediment.

Also, as wines benefit greatly from some exposure to air, decanting the wine will develop more of its complexity, both in flavor and aroma.  We often decant our wines a minimum of one to two hours prior to service to allow it to open and begin to show its true expression of the vineyards from which our grapes are harvested.
