2017 Zinfandel

 The wine shows off with exuberant aromas of boysenberry, apricots, clove, dark chocolate and cinnamon spice.  The palate is inviting and rich with flavors like cherry pie, brandied cherries, anise, birch beer and fig.  The smooth mouthfeel keeps the wine drinkable and integrated throughout as it finishes with notes of orange zest and licorice.  Enjoy this wine now through 2031.

Planted by the Titus family in 1977 this 40 year old Zinfandel vineyard is dry farmed on St George rootstock.  The fruit was harvested in two separate picks on September 7th and October 3rd.  The grapes were gently destemmed and hand sorted before being pumped to tank for cold soak.  After a cold soak of 3 days the wine fermented on the skins for 12 days to the completion of alcoholic fermentation.  The free run wine was then racked to barrel where Malolactic fermentation took place.  The lots were blended in February and the wine aged in 30% new American Oak barrels for a total of 12 months before bottling.
