Paul and Yael Bernier planted a traditional hilside Zinyard at their home in Northern Dry Creek Valley in 1990. Sustainably dry-farmed and cover cropped, it produces a small harvest of intensely flavored and perfectly balance grapes. We cofermented 5% Petite Sirah from the block at the top of the Zinyard to enhance the depth and perfume of the 95% Zinfandel.

Bottled unfined and unfiltered on 7/12/2018.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
This Zin’s subtle approach lends to its sophistication and appeal. The nose presents Pinot-like qualities of earthy cherry and hints of rhubarb, but as it opens, the black pepper laced aromas let you know you’re about to sip a delicious Zinfandel. An easy entry of strawberry, red raspberry, plum and juicy cherry is joined mid-palate by a wave of spiciness—ground pepper and a touch of brown baking spices—and creamy mocha. The inviting, clean flavors provide a brightness that lingers on the palate.
Food Pairing Notes
A great wine to pair with barbecued chicken, Mexican lasagna, or a Margherita pizza.
