2015 Zinfandel

2015 Zinfandel

Zinfandel is the wine that made Paso Robles famous.  Our 2015 Zinfandel is a blend from our own estate vineyard and nearby Templeton Gap  vineyards.  We blended in approximately 10% Petite Sirah for color and character, and to crisp up the acids a bit.  The fruit was harvested overnight, and passed cold across two sorting tables to assure quality and eliminate excess raisins sometimes found in Zinfandel; the result is more elegant and not so jammy as one sometimes finds in a warm climate Zinfandel.  After the sort, we did an extended cold maceration before bringing the wine up to a strictly controlled fermentation temperature.  The wine aged in American oak, at approximately 20% new oak.  This is a robust wine with a fairly high alcohol content, and therefore a favorite of our staff.  Pair this with hearty foods.
