This Zin has appealing aromas of fresh strawberries, dried cranberries, spice box, and a hint of white pepper and cinnamon.  On the palate, it bursts with raspberry tart, goji berries, red currants, sweet cranberries, and toasted hazelnuts.

WINEMAKER NOTES

The Pedrazzini Vineyard is a beautiful hillside vineyard in Sonoma Valley that is meticulously farmed by Don Pedrazzini. The fruit was cold soaked and then fermented warm at an average temperature of 82°F before being aged in premium American oak barrels (35% new, 65% neutral) for 10 months.  This wine was bottled unfined and unfiltered.

 

THE VINTAGE

2016 had a perfect, long growing season in Sonoma Valley, with welcome spring rains and warm summer months. The phenomenal weather held out through the season which allowed the grapes to be harvested on October 1st, 2016. The Zinfandel grapes in the Pedrazzini Vineyard are from the Costa Magna clone on our only volcanic soil profile.
