Connoisseurs' Guide

The most refined and elegant of our nine Zinfandels. Spice, bright blackberry and toasty vanilla flavors join with fine-grained structure, balanced acids and smooth tannins. This wine will age beautifully over the next 5 to 7 years.

100-year-old Bridgehead vineyard in Oakley is dry-farmed and head-pruned as it was a century ago. Hot sun, sandy soil, and cool evening air from the Sacramento and San Joaquin rivers produce a stunning, concentrated harvest.
