2016 “Big Wood” Zinfandel
The grapes were harvested from three different Zinfandel vineyards in the Livermore Valley and blended with 3% Petite Sirah.
A blend of 3 different Livermore Valley Zinfandel Vineyards consisting of 63% Deaver/Dupratt Clone from the Del Arroyo Vineyards, 29% Raboli/Napa Clone from the Ruby Hill Vineyards and 5% Mendocino Clone from Collier Canyon Vineyard blended with 3% Petite Sirah. Aged in 100% American Oak barrels.
Classic berry flavors from olallieberry, deep black flavors of ripe fig, and bright sweet flavors like strawberry jam lurk in this see-through purple wine. Exotic orchid notes and a hint of nutmeg provide highs and lows. The flavors are ripe berry and fig with a touch of oak. The wine is dry with silky tannins and not overpowered by its substantial alcohol. The finish harkens the earthy flavor of brazil nuts.
