Private Reserve Zinfandel

Private Reserve Zinfandel bottle

The Private Reserve wines are the ultimate wines within the portfolio, limited in production, sourced from the finest vineyards in Sonoma County, from appellations best suited for a specific varietal given the dramatic diversity in climatic and soil conditions across the County.  The Private Reserve Zinfandel was sourced from the warmer portions of Sonoma Valley where the afternoons reach high temperatures during the growing season for extended periods of time and result in a wine with juicy, rich flavors.

Medium garnet-purple colored, the 2015 Zinfandel Private Reserve has quite a spicy nose with notions of allspice and powdered cinnamon over a core of raspberry pie, blueberry preserves and raisin cake plus a touch of dried flowers. Full-bodied, rich and decadently fruited in the mouth, it has a chewy frame and lively line of freshness, finishing on a spicy note.
  • Winemaking

    Open top vats, hand punch downs, basket pressing and barrel ageing are key components in the creation of this Zinfandel. After being harvest by hand from October 14th through October 29th, the best lots were fermented separately in open-top vats before being pressed off and aged 13 months in 100% French, Hungarian and American oak, 15% new.

  • Nose

    A beautifully rich, ruby colored wine, the nose opens with expressive aromas of black plum, blueberry, and notes of freshly cracked pepper.

  • Palate

    Fine tannins, incredible structure and stunning balance lead to a velvety mouthfeel and a long, satisfying finish.
