Paso Robles, CA
Our-own-grapes 78.02% Paso Robles Zinfandel, and 7.94% Petite Sirah were machine-picked November 8, 2018 (Zinfandel), October 16 and October 23, 2018 (Petite Sirah). All lots sorted, de-stemmed & crushed, followed by cold soaking, alcoholic fermentation, extended maceration then malolactic fermentation. Pressing before starting aging in oenotanks by early January 2019. A portion of each lot remained in stainless steel to preserve the varietal fruit's freshness. Final blend with the Lodi components was assembled just prior to bottling.
