The fruit for this Zinfandel was sourced from multiple vineyards on the west side of Paso Robles. Picked as they reached optimal ripeness, the grapes were hand harvested and carefully destemmed. The resulting musts were fermented to dryness and softly pressed before being aged for 18 months in a combination of 30% new French, Hungarian, and American oak barriques and puncheons.
