"Varietally intriguing and compelling in tobacco, clove and blackberry, this full-bodied wine is tremendously appealing, with dark, brooding layers of spice and garrigue. Rich and lengthy, it shows plenty of complexity around a supple core of inviting succulence and well-integrated tannin and oak." - Virginie Boone, Wine Enthusiast, September 2022
Quenching in acid-driven flavors of Meyer lemon, tangerine and grapefruit, this is a lovely, bright, light and complex wine of great structure and refinement. A lasting note of wet stone adds to the beautiful texture. - Virginie Boone, Wine Enthusiast, Spring 2022
The aroma in the 2020 is delicate, showing hints of wildflowers and lemon peel. On the palate, the wine is seamless and elegant. Quince and lemon pith flavors are complemented by a light, chalky undertone and a long mineral finish.
"Our 2017 Zinfandel Port exhibits a complex nose of cherry cordial, back fruits interlaced with candied orange zest and anise. Ripe blackberry, black cherry, and mocha flavors are framed by nutmeg and ends with a rich, sweet finish. To preserve the depth of character and intensity of flavors, the wine was neither fined nor filtered." - Jeff Stewart and Tiaan Lordan, Winemakers
