Winemaker Ray Coursen Notes
We have been making Zinfandel from the Morisoli Vineyard since 1987 and have been the only producer working with these grapes since 1988. The old vines, volcanic soil, Rutherford Bench terroir and field blend always create a truly distinctive Zinfandel.

The 2007 vintage is dark ruby colored, with intoxicating aromas of perfectly ripe berries, sweet oak, and cinnamon. On the palate, flavors of raspberries, vanilla, smoked bacon, and coffee lead to a pleasingly lush texture. This wine shows layers of gorgeous fruit with a deep, underlying complexity that is so characteristic of this vineyard.

This wine is extremely food friendly. Try it with a peppered steak, osso buco, rich tomato dishes, pasta or a selection of cheeses. ...more...

This wine will cellar nicely for a good 7 to 12 years.
