This is the first time that we have made this Vineyard Designate. For those of you that remember the old De Loach days this was the Vineyard from which we made our O.F.S. Reserve Chardonnay. Rich and creamy with a little toast and papaya.
This wine has notes of butterscotch and hazelnut on the nose with a smooth mouth feel. Hints of dried strawberry, rich cedar and captivating cigar smoke reflect the 3 years that this Sangiovese spends in barrel and makes it highly drinkable soon.
The vines for this Zinfandel were planted in 1922. It has flavors of dark plums, pomegranate and dried fig. A whisper of cinnamon and white pepper. These old vines produce a wine with a strong structure but light tannins.
