We have been looking for a delicious Zinfandel at this price point for some time, and we think we’ve found a winner! Ancient Peaks sits in the Paso Robles appellation, 22 miles south Read More...
of the city of Paso Robles and just 14 miles from the Pacific Ocean. Here, the surrounding peaks of the Santa Lucia Mountain Range act as a gateway between the ocean-cooled environs below the grade and the warmer climes above the grade. When the days heat up in the areas north and east of Margarita Vineyard, the air rises to create a vacuum that pulls marine breezes and fog inland over the peaks, and right through the vineyard. This means the fruit gets ripe, without any “off” flavors, yet the cooling afternoon breezes help the resulting wine to retain freshness and acidity.

The 2011 Zinfandel bursts with bright, fresh aromas of wild blackberries and raspberry jam with suggestions of cola and cocoa. Juicy flavors of cherry, strawberry and boysenberry anticipate accents of cedar and white pepper.

The 2011 Napa Valley Zinfandel is a blend of two very special vineyards. The first, Luvisi Vineyard was planted in 1908 and the second, Frediani Vineyard comes from two blocks, one Read More...
planted sometime in the 1940’s and the second planted in the early 1950’s. Both vineyards are head-trained and dry-farmed, thus yielding small, very concentrated crops (less than two tons per acre). The 2011 has the classic Zin nose and still great depth and body even considering the cool temperature of the vintage. The wine is dark ruby in color with aromas of blackberry, black cherry, spice, ground nutmeg and cedar. On the palate, it is expressive with flavors of wild raspberries, currant, mocha and mint. This wine has a supple mouthfeel which leads into a long, milk chocolaty finish.

of the best of our Brown Estate terroir integrated into one stellar wine. As such, it is the most challenging zin we produce because it requires commingling of four distinct “personalities” into one well-adjusted protagonist. The fact that no single vineyard’s qualities dominate here is a testament to the integration, fluidity, and perpetual motion – the balancing act! – that is Brown Estate itself. Deeper, darker and richer than previous vintages, this 2012 bottling is marked by ripe Bing cherry and big briery black fruit characteristics. Exotic spice and subtle citrus integrate with vibrant acidity to balance out this wine’s lush and rich juiciness. Excellent palate weight with a silky, long, lingering finish. Drink now through 2022.

opening of the champagne cellars, which have been unavailable to the public for over 20 years. Jean-Charles is 100% dedicated to doing whatever is needed to showcase the quality of the wines from this property. The wines of Buena Vista are being driven to greater heights under Winemaker Brian Maloney and Consulting Winemaker David Ramey, including the re-introduction of Sonoma wines, in honor of Buena Vista's role in the discovery of Sonoma as one California's great terroirs.

As the name would imply, this wine is in honor of The Count of Buena Vista, a tireless and passionate devotee of Californian wines. From prestigious vineyards across Sonoma, The Count's intriguing varietals intermingle seamlessly to produce an elegant and complex wine. Individual lots of Zinfandel, Syrah, and Merlot were fermented separately and aged for 16 months in American, Hungarian, and French oak barrels before final assemblage. The wine's bouquet opens beautifully with rich aromas of black currant, cherries, grilled meat, pepper, and just a hint of espresso. Smooth on the palate, the wine offers flavors of red fruit compote, plum, raspberries, and blackberry that give way to cardamom on the long, silky finish.

Winemaker Julianne Laks crafts this enormously appealing Zinfandel from grapes grown at a 2,100-foot-plus elevation in the acclaimed Red Hills appellation of Lake County. Located Read More...
at the foot of Mt. Konocti, an ancient volcano, this prime site boasts a perfect southwestern exposure and vines rooted in well-drained, mineral-rich, red volcanic soils. Its hot sunny days, windy afternoons and nights chilled by breezes from nearby Clear Lake provide ideal conditions for three distinguished clones of Zinfandel, including Primitivo and heritage selections from Amador and Mendocino counties.

Reflecting the unique character of the Red Hills appellation, Cakebread's 2011 Zinfandel showcases bright raspberry, black cherry and dark plum aromas complemented by intriguing dusty earth, black pepper and milk chocolate scents. On the rich and lively palate, it delivers pure, deeply concentrated black raspberry, dark cherry and blackberry flavors streaked with mineral and briary spice tones. Beautifully structured with sturdy, but supple tannins, fresh acidity and a long, rich, chocolatey finish, this mountain Zinfandel wine is delightful to drink now, but will surely repay another 3-5 years of cellaring.

for fantastic ripening. Warm days during harvest also tend to produce wines that come of age quicker, thus requiring shorter barrel aging time and wonderfully fresh wines in the bottle. The Zinfandel for 2012 came from Kate’s Vineyard on Kiler Canyon Road and the Herder Vineyard near Creston to the East of Paso Robles. B y combining a cool climate vineyard with a warm climate vineyard, Calcareous can produce a blended Zin that displays the strengths of both.

The beautiful dark ruby color gives evidence of a dense yet lively wine. The nose is an intriguing blend of tart bing cherry and rich boysenberry pie aromas. The mouth feel continues this trend of opposites with wonderful acid balancing full bodied flavors of blackberry, licorice and pepper. The finish is rich yet clean, offering a hint of American oak vanilla.

blend wines based on taste rather than tradition, and those wines turned out delicious. In developing the Conundrum red wine, Charlie II took his grandfather’s approach, and last year’s premier release sold faster than we could have expected! Deep garnet in color, the nose is floral with tones of lavender mixed with rich notes of dried berries, baking chocolate, and bacon. The palate is silky and round on the entry with acid to balance the high fruit concentration. This is a fruit forward wine, yet still has a good core of tannin to give the wine structure.

"The outstanding 2011 Earthquake Zin (100% Zinfandel; 15,000 cases produced) was aged for 10 months in French oak. Peppery and spicy with plenty of berry fruit (cherries and raspberries) intertwined with dusty, loamy soil, incense and a Provencal garrigue-like note jump from the glass of this impressive wine."
