High Valley Zinfandel, Lake County
Our High Valley Zinfandel has a nose of strawberries, spice and soft vanilla. Its flavors are of ripe raspberry jam, exotic spices and cassis with a finish that lingers of silky tannins and vanilla. The High Valley AVA rises between 1,600 and 3,000 ft. elevation in the Coastal Ranges of northeastern Lake County. Thanks to the high elevation and coal breezes from the oldest lake in North America, it is one of the coolest appellations in Lake County. We run nearly 1,000 sheep on these vineyards, composting the weeds into nutrients for the red, rocky volcanic soils. These are intensely flavored grapes, and we craft them into wines that capture the character of this remarkable region. Alc 14.5% by vol. Vinted & bottled by High Valley Cellars, Hopland, CA.
