Jackass Vineyard Zinfandel 2017

Varietal

Zinfandel

Growing Year Info

The growing season of 2017 stayed wet with spring rains and cooler temperatures, providing moist soil reserves through the summer. The summer had stretches of hot days throughout, especially over the Labor Day weekend, when harvest was at its peak. We were very lucky in October 2017 that the Tubbs Fire, which burned from Calistoga to Santa Rosa, stopped 1.5 miles from our properties. Across Sonoma County as well as in our vineyards, 95% of all wine grapes were already harvested and were not affected by the smoke from these devastating fires.

Tasting Notes

Our 2017 Jackass Vineyard Zinfandel has aromas of black cherry, stone fruits, and coffee. The palate is very complex; layered with flavors of bold black plum, hints of baking spices, and blackberries.
