As terroir driven winemakers, we could not pass over the opportunity to partner with the estemmed Zinfandel vineyard site just off Zinfandel Lane in St Helena. Dr. Picket Vineyard was planted in 1998 and considered one of the top Zinfandel vineyard sources in Napa Valley. Unfortunetly, the owner Dr. Picket recently passed this year. He served as the Chief of Surgery and Chief of Staff at The Queen of the Valley Hospital.
Our small lot fruit-forward Zinfandel reminds our team of an indulgent "party in a bottle." The deep garnet-purple color coupled with notions of crushed red currants, Morello cherries, boysenberries on the palate deliver intense, tightly wound black and red fruit layers, supported by firm, ripe tannins. We made this beauty just once and have very limited supply.
