"Broad in texture and generous in flavor, this mouth-filling, lightly tannic wine offers juicy dark plum, blackberry and roasted meat flavors for a satisfying and layered effect on the palate. Not too full bodied, it will be a wine for all occasions. - Jim Gordon, Wine Enthusiast
Our 2019 Zinfandel shows off its elegant ruby color, aromas of black cherry, white spice, and kumquats. Opening on the palate are earthy notes of wet clay and forest floor. Dark, ripe bing cherry and plum expressions complement the balanced tannic profile of this timeless wine.
Our 2019 Zinfandel grapes were harvested in two picks from our three blocks. The grapes were grown on our estate Coble Ranch Vineyard, located in Winters, CA. We use the heritage Primitivo Clone in our Zinfandel block, which produces a lighter, more refined fruit profile than its counterparts. After the grapes were harvested and sorted they were fermented in small lots, then pressed in our traditional basket press. Once pressed, the wine was aged for 19 months in twice used French Oak barrels.
