2017 Mountain Selection Zinfandel
2017 was the first full vintage no longer being affected by the previous drought. Good winter rains produced a flavorful crop. The late harvest allowed the grapes to ripen long into the fall developing full complex flovored wine.
Fruit forward, rich full flavors expressing both the varietal and the amador Terroir. This complex wine has notes of bright raspberry, white pepper and a full pleasant mouthfeel.
