2019 Field Blend 750mL
118 cases produced
The familiar jammy black fruit and spice flavors of Field Blend show a more serious side in the 2019 vintage, when a longer growing season with slow ripening allowed grapes to develop rich, deep flavors. Zinfandel dominates this Field Blend, which shows ripe blackberry and peppery notes with hints of savory herbs and spices. The lush finish is smooth and velvety, hinting at dark chocolate and black cherry.
Nearly ideal spring weather with consistent rains in 2019 lead to a mild growing season with a slow ripening pattern that favored the development of complex flavors, fully mature tannins and beautiful balance. The relaxed ripening meant a dark expression of Zinfandel, paired with perfectly ripe Petite Sirah. Several hours of decanting will allow the flavors of this wine to unfold.
