A nuanced, perfumed nose of confit fruits, sandalwood and rose petal. Bright, sleek and refined on the palate, reflecting both the vineyard's prized position on the eastern edge of the Laguna de Santa Rosa (nature's "air conditioner" for the Piner/Olivet area) and the precision derived from the high percentage of Zinfandel in this post-prohibition planting - a clean expression of the variety. Plum preserves and baking spices mingle on the palate, with nutmeg notes leading the charge on the finish. Stunning. Drink 2019 - 2030.
Well-knit and precise, with a core of lively acidity and tannins to balance the ripe fruit, showing notes of blackberry, dark fruitcake spices, sandalwood and pepper. Drink now through 2028.
