2017 VGS Zinfandel
The 2017 vintage will be known for the Northern California fires, however, what we remember it for is the plush, ripe fruit that we were able to harvest and turn into gorgeous wines.
The 2017 VGS Zinfandel shows exuberance and balance. This wine is sure to please. Aromas of crushed ripe bing cherry and raspberries pull you in. On the plate, there is a pleasant weight with a vibrant acidiety. The real beauty of our Moon Mountain location is that our elevation and cooler climate protects the acidity and makes the structure of the wine balanced with its richness.
