Vineyard: Our 2018 Napa Zinfandel was harvested to ultra ripe at 27.8 harvest brix in the summer Napa heat. Grapes were transported to Fresno State Winery overnight.
Tasting Notes: Aged flavors of fresh plum, black cherry and briar are married with new toasty oak, dried fruit, floral notes and all spices in white pepper.

Aging is not necessary.
