Silver Medal-2002 Santa Cruz County Fair

Silver Medal-2003 LA County Fair

  Winemaker's Notes:
  • Cabernet Sauvignon

Grapes for this unique zinfandel were harvested from the Ancel Vineyard on a cold mid-November morning, only moments before the sky opened up with a torrent of autumn rain.  This limited production wine was embellished with our unique methode bouteille deaux fois (twice bottled) treatment.  Savor the rich dark-cherry and berry flavors, married with the essence of dried fig and plum.
