Described by our Assistant Winemaker Angela Carvalho as "Calistoga Sunshine", this wine showcases bright red fruit all day. Red apples with cherry and raspberry flavors create a vibrancy on the palate that makes this wine fruit-forward. Figs, toasted nuts, holiday spices, and mocha come forth on the finish. This is a medium-bodied red, that can be enjoyed now or rested for a few years.

Our Zinfandel Port isn't made very often. We make a small selection of Zinfandel Port on occassion and keep it secret. Known to age and have extended drinking time once opened, don't be afraid to take a nip tonight and save the rest for another day.
Primarily coming from our warmest vineyard in Calistoga, this vintage is rich and full-bodied. A new release of our Reserve Zinfandel brings elegance to this grape with complexity and balance. Big zinfandel with bright red fruit and a plush mid-palate makes the perfect segway to a lengthy finish. Flavors of raspberry, cherry, and anise compliment vanilla and fresh cracked pepper. Dark cocoa nib and lavender with hints of expresso are expressed as the bottle opens up.
