Winemakers Note: 

"Temptation Zinfandel tantalizes the senses with captivating aromas and alluring flavors. At harvest, our winemaker Kevin Hall selects the grapes that showcase bright berries and spice from our three favorite Zinfandel regions for this easy drinking, casual wine. 

Overall, 2016 was a more normal growing season than the previous few years. While the drought was still persistent, we received much needed rain over the winter and early spring. The good weather continued through the summer with no damaging heat spikes. Yields were slightly reduced, but the quality and flavor of the grapes were stellar. During harvest the different lots were de-stemmed, then fermented separately, and then aged in American oak barrels for 14 months. 

The Alexander Valley (30%) Zinfandel has elegant red fruit flavors of raspberry and strawberry, the Suisun Valley (44%) Zinfandel adds ripe, jammy flavors, and the Dry Creek Valley (26%) Zinfandel brings a little structure and black fruit to the blend. 

This purple hued wine has earthy aromas of plum, strawberry jam, fruit leather, black cher-ry and apricot. There are ripe flavors of red cherry, black pepper, blackberry, wild strawber-ry and a slight dusting of cocoa powder. This mouth-filling, medium bodied wine is a crowd pleaser with a structured, juicy fruit finish."
