Black Diamond Zinfandel

Vintage: 2012
Winemaker's Notes: Carfully selected lots were fermented seperately in small stainless steel tanks for ten days after a night harvest and four days of cold soaking which added color and depth. The wine was carefully transferred to American oak barrels while in the last stages of fermentation causing an increase in grape extraction. Finally lees were sirred once a week for eight months imparting a creamy, softer mouth feel. American Oad aged for 11 months, 1/3rd new oak and then blended to complete our 2012 Zinfandel.
