Youthfully shy, a bit of aeration reveals notes of sweet pipe tobacco and juicy flavors of ripe blue and red berries, anise and mild peppercorns. More a statement of freshness than porty over-extraction the wine delivers
a mouthful of piquant just-picked raspberries.

91 points | Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2016 Zinfandel Reserve Michael's Estate Vineyard reveals an expressive nose of dark fruit compote, blackberries and licorice, followed by a full-bodied, velvety palate with an ample core of succulent fruit, fine tannins and mouthwateringly tangy acids. It's a distinctive Zinfandel to follow for the better part of a decade.


Harvested in the cool predawn hours fruit is hand sorted, de-stemmed, and individual berries are optically sorted to eliminate raisins and shot berries. Small batch fermentation on indigenous yeast is followed by an extended period of skin contact then 14 months in a mix of new and neutral oak barrels. Youthfully shy, a bit of aeration reveals notes of sweet pipe tobacco and juicy flavors of ripe blue and red berries, anise and mild peppercorns. More a statement of freshness than porty over-extraction the wine delivers a mouthful of piquant just-picked raspberries.
