The Tasting Panel, 91 Points (2017 Vintage)

"The Ancient Vines Zinfandel shows spicy, bright strawberry, coffee and chocolate characters. Ripe fruit and soft tannins make this a rich, mouth-coating vintage. Aging on new and used oak has lent this wine a subtle vanilla quality that nicely complements the explosive fruit notes. Enjoy now or cellar for 5 to 7 years."

The 2016 vintage was #40 Wine Spectator Top 100 list!

Winemaking:

"Lots were harvested separately according to ripeness and balance of acidity. Grapes underwent near total destemming and a very gentle crushing to ensure a large proportion of whole berries in the must, contributing to the explosive fruit character of the wine. The grapes, juice, skins, and seeds (called “must”) along with some added yeasts were fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks at the optimum temperature to extract rich flavors and provide excellent color. The wine was pressed off its skins at dryness and racked gently before being laid down on American oak for 10 months."

ABV: 14.5%
