Drink now through 2017.

With the cooler growing season of 2010, the delayed harvest allowed longer hang times, resulting in expressive fruit and the classic combination of viscosity and “nerve” (the French word for crisp natural fruit acidity). After three years of drought conditions, the El Nino weather pattern returned effectively raising the Pacific Ocean temperatures and promoting an uplift of moisture into the upper atmosphere. The 2010 harvest broke from the year’s proceeding drought riddled harvests with vineyards being graced with above average rainfall, approaching as much as 40 inches in parts.  The unique microclimate in the mountainous vineyards allowed for well- balanced and vibrant acidity for our Zinfandel.  


The cooler vintage, 2010 emphasizes the racy and vibrant blueberry fruitiness which is a vineyard trait.  The vineyard designated wine is a best-block selection which is still putting meat on the bones with its emergent fruity brightness over a crisp edge of natural acidity.  A background of allspice and dusty bramble-like spiciness lurks in the finish.  This well structured wine should hold nicely through 2017, but can be paired with tonight’s BBQ.
