Winemaker Notes

This 2017 Zinfandel is an elegant style of Zin, due to our blend of growing region and our wine-making style. We harvest grapes from Dry Creek Valley, Sonoma and Mendocino County including a little area of Alexander Valley, looking for a balance of ripeness and acidity in each lot to showcase our valley. This balance explains Silvia Cellars Zin’s restaurant popularity; it is always a food friendly style of Zinfandel. We blended this Zinfandel with 8% of Alexander Valley Syrah for the perfect integration of flavor. After fermentation the wine was aged for ten months in American oak barrels to add depth, complexity and texture. There is a spicy, earthy nose and the aromas of dark fruits, raspberry and vanilla. There is great up front fruit with big flavors of black cherry, plum, chocolate and black pepper. This is a rich Zinfandel with good balance, chewy texture, nice acidity and a long, spicy finish.
