Supple black fruits and spicy anise aromas combined with classic Sierra Foothill peppery Zin aromas and flavors.  The mouthfeel has a focused supple character that relies heavily on the black fruit characters.  The wine has a great mid-palate with classic foothill black pepper characteristics.  Finishes soft but long with dark berries.

Varietals- 88% Zinfandel, 12% Petite Sirah

Vineyards- 100% Frank Herbert Vineyard

Aging & Cooperage- 18 months in 2-year-old French oak

Production- Grapes were hand-picked and gently crushed into small bins for fermentation.  All of the grapes were crushed and no yeast was added to this lot as the grapes fermented naturally with only a small amount of nutrients added to assist the “native” fermentation.  After 10 days and nearing the end of fermentation, this lot was pressed off of the skins and into small new French oak barrels for secondary (or malo-lactic) fermentation.  After the secondary ferment, the wine was gently racked off of the primary lees.  The wine was then placed in small French oak barrels for 16 months of aging.  The wine was then bottled without fining and with minimal filtration.  194 cases were made.
