Winemaker Corey Beck Notes
Our Diamond Zinfandel is an expression of several unique appellations and one incredible vintage. From our Hogs Canyon vineyard in Paso Robles comes fruit that was highly concentrated as a result of dry summer temperatures that exceeded 95F. At the other end of the appellation, we sourced from a vineyard comprised of gravely clay loam soils similar to those of Australias Barossa Valley. This fruit was blended with grapes from our Sonoma County vineyards, which typically provide very high-quality fruit that ripens evenly and exudes immense character and flavor. Finally, we added an extra layer of complexity by blending in a small amount of Petite Sirah. The resulting wine has a solid structure and mature tannins to give balance to Zinfandels ...more... inherently jammy nature.
