This tradition rich Zinfandel hails from the same vineyard as the award-winning 2015 and 2016 Landy Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon. On first impression, notes of warm, ripe, and dark fruit such as black cherry, fig, and plum hit the nose. The fruit aromas are contrasted by hints of leather, pepper, and tinges of tobacco. Similar to the aromatic notes, this Zinfandel offers seamlessly balanced flavors of rich, peppery, ripe dark fruit characteristics. Hints of herbaceousness and cloves are integrated with slightly jammy flavors, shaping this wine to pair divinely with a variety of barbecue foods. Conversely, this wine can also pair quite well with blackberry pie or cobbler.
First and only vintage of this wine. Usually, our winemaker does single-vineyard wines, in this case, two single vineyards had such small production that when blended to get the wine combined to make a really perfect marriage. The lean, bright acidity in the Frati Lane pinot noir, added to the rich lush fruit of the RLR vineyard. So putting these two vineyards together made for a very structured and sound wine.
