Profile


TASTING NOTES

Grapes from one of the finest vineyards in California, organically grown. Located in the foothills, the climate encourages Zinfandel to develop intense aromas with great acidity. Bright, vibrant red color with a spicy nose that encompasses a fruit profile of blackberry, raspberry and watermelon. Pleasantly tart with zippy acidity.


VINEYARD NOTES

Our 2018 Zinfandel grapes come from one of the most highly sought after vineyards in California. Shake Ridge Vineyard is located in the Sierra Foothills along a ridge 1,650–1,810 feet above sea level, overlooking the town of Sutter Creek. Renowned grower, Ann Kraemer is one of the most highly respected figures in the wine world.


WINEMAKER NOTES

Working with Anne’s fruit is always an honor. I lean towards an old world style of balanced wine making much like the Zinfandel’s from the 70’s. A very approachable and balanced Zinfandel.


Italian Spiedini

A traditional Italian BBQ dish and a century old tradition, the Italians make a day of barbecuing over an open fire starting with the aperitivo and having a glass of wine, all the way through dolce (dessert!). BBQ peaches are a traditional Italian dolce that we know you will enjoy, too!
