ROSÉ OF ZINFANDEL
Our Rosé of Zinfandel displays fresh red strawberry & plum, hints of rose petal and cherry with a touch of orange blossom on the nose. This wine exhibits fresh strawberry & ripe raspberry upon entry and is round and lush on the front and mid-palate. Its delicate acidity makes it balanced and delicious with a hint of sweetness on the finish.
Bright, super-fresh aromas of sweet citrus, melon, guava and white flowers introduce pure, vibrant flavors of grapefruit, guava, gooseberry, fleshy melon and white peach, with a refreshing minerality invigorating the wine's long, crisp finish.
RUSSIAN RIVER VALLEY
Faded rose, nutmeg and allspice complement the subtle notes of porcini and Oolong tea. Tightly wound on the palate at first, the wine expands out onto the mid-palate to deliver some wonderfully refreshing red fruits, citrus, and tea-like tannins.
SONOMA COUNTY RANCHES
Our Zinfandel is powerful in wild blackberry, black raspberry and mulberry fruit, the wine also exhibits cola, mocha and chamomile notes liberally accented with crushed black pepper, dark chocolate, nutmeg and allspice. This wine finishes complex, long and absolutely dry.
RESERVE TREBORCE VINEYARD ZINFANDEL
Blackberry and plum jump from the glass and intermix with red raspberry and cherry. A floral quality comes through, with a little aeration, and complements the darker elements of wood spices and clove. The flavors lead with dark berry fruits but the red fruits explode in the middle and transition to anise and clove, and hint of lavender on the finish. The robust tannin fans out on the finish, tempered by a refreshing acidity throughout.
Our Reserve wine is opaque purple color exemplifies perfectly ripe blackberries and juicy wild blueberries, layered with café mocha, sweet black licorice and dried sage. Upon first sip, tantalizing notes of cassis, blackberries and dark chocolate are nuanced with tealeaf, graphite and sweet pipe tobacco. An opulent mid-palate with gorgeous concentration, impressive tannic structure and incredible length enhance this expressive wine.
The 2011 Zinfandel is further characterized by Spanish cherries, dark raspberry, and boysenberry fruit that mingle with vanilla, anise, cinnamon, toasty oak, and allspice.
