Description | Details | Rating

This delicious wine is made from grapes grown on our estate vineyard in Paso Robles, which is named Quarry Heights due to its steep, rocky hillsides and view of an old quarry. The head-trained vines grow on calcareous shale soils that impart a distinct minerality to the wine. After aging in French and American oak barrels for twelve months, our Zinfandel reveals ripe flavors of blackberry, boysenberry, and black cherry with accented hints of spice and dark cocoa.

Wine Enthusiast
"Dense blackberry and black cherry notes pick up soy, oregano, thyme and roast beef characteristics in this very dark style of Zin. The deep and rich palate offers concentrated black cherry syrup before revealing rustic touches of leather and tobacco. A hearty wine to match your roasted meats."
90 Points - Beverage Testing Institute
"Opaque bright dark deep purple color. Bright, roasted aromas and flavors of butter roasted nuts, leather, toasted cranberry bread, and hint of bacon with a soft, lively, fruity full body and a smooth, complex, medium-length chocolate berries, spiced nuts, toasty oak, and roasted coffee beans finish with fine, dusty tannins and moderate oak. A super fruit and stylish zinfandel with bold, toasty spice oak at every turn; a must for zin heads."
