About This Item

The Zephyr blend is about co-fermentation. It is culmination of some of the best fruit from the home vineyard, combined with fruit from some of my favorite local growers. We take Syrah and Viognier then co-fermented them together in classic Cote Rotie style, leaving the wine on the skins for extended maceration to enhance mouth feel and color. We utilize cooler fermentation temperatures to accentuate the more delicate fruit and floral characteristics in the wine. I have selected premium French oak barrels that enhance and compliment the floral and fruit forward style of the Zephyr blend. The wine exhibits a sultry texture with ripe red berries, The Viognier is apparent, lifting the floral and dark fruit of the Syrah and Zinfandel. The finish lingers with balanced acidity and tannin complemented with smokey cedar spice.
