2016 Opaque Zinfandel, Paso Robles

2016 Opaque Zinfandel, Paso Robles

Ripe flavors of blackberry, boysenberry, and black cherry with accents of spice and dark cocoa.

The quality of the 2016 vintage was excellent. The weather was ideal with a long growing season that provided great hang time for the grapes. Winemakers Anthony Riboli and Arnaud Debons work closely with multiple vineyards from various districts within Paso Robles. All vineyard owners are long-term partners in this process. Each vineyard lot is fermented separately to preserve the unique flavors of its terroir. After aging in French oak barrels for 14 months, our Zinfandel reveals ripe flavors of blackberry, boysenberry, and black cherry with accents of spice and dark cocoa. Enjoy the darkness!

 

Sustainability

Sustainability is our top priority. Our Paso Robles and Monterey vineyards are certified sustainable by CSWA. At our Paso Robles winery, solar panels provide 100% of the needed electricity, and wastewater is effectively reclaimed and recycled for additional uses.

Wine Making

Opaque Zinfandel comes only from the best lots that our estate vineyards have to offer. Small lots are picked and fermented individually with minimal intervention to allow the true expression of the soil and climate. The wines are matured in a unique selection of hand-crafted French and American oak barrels.

Food Pairing

Our Zinfandel is quite versatile in its pairing options. Try it with pulled pork, french onion soup, or sharp cheddar.
