ABOUT THE

WINE

2014 Black Glass Vineyard Zinfandel St. Helena

Tasting Notes:
A brilliant medium garnet in color, this wine offers aromas of rose petal and violets, raspberry, cherry compote and boysenberry. Medium bodied, the wine has lively acidity with brambly blackberry flavors and a spicy finish with hints of sandalwood, allspice, vanilla and cocoa.  Enjoy now or cellar for 3 to 5 years for further complexity.

 

 

MEET THE WINEMAKER

         

MATT REID
WINEMAKING
The estate Black Glass Vineyard Zinfandel takes its name from the obsidian that surfaces in the vineyard after each rain. Much of this obsidian was shaped into spear points or arrowheads 150 years ago. Zinfandel seems to thrive here—perhaps the black obsidian captures heat that helps lets the vine roots develop.
In the winery we treat our Zinfandel as gently as our Sangiovese. We ferment in open top tanks and gently punch down twice each day. When the fermentation is complete we mature the wine in neutral French oak barrels.
