91 points - 2016 Vintage"This big but plush wine is deep in color, rich in blackberry aromas and saturated with ripe jammy flavors that spread across the palate and cling to the sides of the mouth. It is full bodied, very concentrated and has a ripeness that leaves a fruity sensation on the finish." Download: Sales Sheet Shelftalker

Silver Medal, Cellar SelectionBright black violet color. Aromas and flavors of grilled berries, polished furniture, patent leather, green bell pepper, and green peppercorn with a chewy, vibrant, dryish medium-to-full body and an intriguing, medium-length dried mint finish with harsh tannins and moderate oak. A big, zesty Zinfandel; give this one some time to open up.

Mendocino Vineyard Sourcing
Mendocino, located in California’s rugged North Coast, has unique microclimates. The coastal mountain range manifests high heat during the day while the close proximity to the Pacific ocean allows cooling in the evenings. This coupled with rich, well-drained soils makes great growing conditions of varietally expressive Zinfandel.
