2010 Tres Sabores Zinfandel
Bench, classic "Cabernet Country" also turns out to be a pretty
splendid place to grow and make Zinfandel. Our 2010 wine shines with all of the
sumptuous, berry-forward aromas and spicy, black-pepper, white-pepper flavors
one would hope for in a Zinfandel. We picked the eight acres of 38 year-old
vines in small sections over six dates and fermented each lot in 3/4-ton bins.
A few lots were allowed to ferment spontaneously (a process this vineyard
loves). All of the wine was aged for 21 months in 40% new oak- French (with a
handful of American) barrels. 500 cases made.
