Johanes Glos (great-great grandfather to winemaker Jenny Wagner) inspired ths name of this wine. Arriving in Napa Valley in the 1800s, he homesteaded with his family on Howell Mountain, working hard an dliving simple life. Johannes and his wife Anna Maria lost four childred, yet from everything learned, he remained good-natured. he was regularly seen walking from his home down to work in the valley's wineries below. For this reason, he became affectionately known by the nickname "the Walking Fool."

Both Zinfandel and Petite Sirah - the two base wines in the Walking Fool blend - flourish in the Suisun Valley. Zinfandel is especially well-suited to the hillside, where soils are rockier, whereas the Petite sirah grows especially well in the richer soils on the valley floors.

A silky scarlet red with luminous highlights, this wine opens with a lean earthiness - the scent of rustic wood mixes with sweet spice, a whiff of cigar box, dusty pavement, and old leather, infused with garden ripe strawberries and cherries. The palate is smooth and lively, featuring flavors of juicy raspberry, the subtle tartness of cranberry, and notes of expresso and smoked meat. Underlying acidity makes this wine mouthwatering, while its tannins lend a gritty yet softly fine texture. On the finish; a trace of vibrant cranberry, luxurious cocoa, and an extra kick of spice.
