Tasting notes

Our Zinfandel is a union of vineyard and varietal histories. Zinfandel was first planted in California in the mid-lSOO's, and our Soda Creek Ranch property in the 1880's. The site was purchased and restored by the Millers in 1992. To honor this history, our Zinfandel vines are planted with bud wood from other historic Napa Valley vineyards and are head-trained. Soil and site limit the production of the vines. The resulting wines are deep ruby in color with aromas of freshly cracked pepper, wild berry patch and savory spices.
 

 

Ripe and powerful, yet a balanced acidity provides freshness. Briary blackberry, fig, and candied strawberry are met with white pepper, spicy dried lavender and toasted coconut flakes.

 

Aging Suggestion : 2-5 years peak; drink by 6-8 years

Vintage Notes

Every vintage tells a story and Napa Valley's 2017 is no exception.

From abundant winter rains to cool spring weather, warm summer temperatures and October’s wildfires, this vintage may be more

memorable  than  most. Plentiful winter  rains helped  refresh our groundwater and the vines and  led  to a cool,  mild spring. An unusual hailstorm in early June had little effect on the overall crop. Due in part to these warmer temperatures, 90% of Napa Valley's grape tonnage was harvested before  the wine country wildfires started on October 8. Although the fires were a terrible human tragedy, taking lives and destroying property, the Napa Valley wine industry, its wineries and its vineyards were largely spared.
