Winemaker Notes
Sonoma County is home to many wonderful and unique growing regions for Zinfandel. The primary source of the Sonoma County Blend is grown on Madrone Estate in Sonoma Valley where the days are warm but regulated by foggy mornings. This allows the fruit to ripen but maintain a high level of fruitfulness. The Dry Creek Zinfandel portion of this blend adds spiciness as the days reach higher temperatures. At night, the marine influence cools off the fruit which allows for a beautiful variance in climate. Each region is fermented separately to capture their character and combined to form a very tasty, well balanced story of Zinfandel in Sonoma County.

Tasting & Pairing
Spicy, dark cherry entry leading to a pleasantly structured mid-palate filled with well-defined tannins and oak. Enjoy alongside a spice rubbed duck breast followed by an indulgent slice of chocolate dessert.
