Composition: 100% Zinfandel

A true classic Zinfandel, harvested late in the season in very cool weather. Winemaker Greg LaFollette and the crew pick during the early morning when some of the many tiny tree frogs that live in this vineyard are too cold to move, so they cling, hidden, to the grape clusters. As the frogs warm up they leap off the sorting table and away to the nearby creekside. The grapes are then prepared and the wine is barreled in a mix of American and French oak for 12 months.
