Winemaker Chaim Gur-Arieh Notes
The Zinfandel grapes used for making this wine came from three different vineyards: Davis Vineyard in Fair Play, Helwig Vineyards in Shenandoah Valley and our Estate Vineyard. Other varieties were added in order to improve the balance and add complexity to the wine.

This wine is bottled using screw cap as the closure. Our decision to use this closure was based on quality issues. By using the screw cap over the cork we avoid cork taint and the sporadic oxidation of the wine that emanates from the cork that at times leaks oxygen into the bottle resulting in variation in the quality of the wine from one bottle to the next.

Made in our “Submerged Cap” Fermentation Tank and aged in predominantly French oak for 14 ...more... months, this fully extracted and well balanced medium body wine is more elegant than robust. You will not overlook its strong varietal aromas of blackberries with hints of spice which carries into the mid-palate adding black cherry and plum flavors. The finish is long adding more spice and hints of chocolate.
