Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Powerful and spicy, this wine is packed with black peppercorns, raspberry compote and vanilla bean. Chewy and complex, like a leather wrapped blackberry tart.
Vineyard Notes
At 2100 feet above sea level the Monte Sereno Vineyard is located on the western slopes of High Valley. This special site is planted to the Primotivo clone.
Production Notes
At Brassfield Estate, our winemaking emphasizes quality and the use of traditional handcrafted techniques, which create wines that have both power and finesse. During harvest we used aerative pump overs and finished with extended maceration and heating of the must. After sending wines to barrels, we then allowed our wines to undergo malolactic fermentation naturally in our caves. To showcase the fruit and structure of this wine, it was aged in 30% new American oak barrels and 70% neutral American oak barrels for 10 months. The wine was stirred monthly on its lees to achieve body and texture. This Monte Sereno Zinfandel was lightly fined, but bottled without filtration.
Winemaker Notes
78% Zinfandel 15% Petite Sirah 7% Mourvèdre
Food Pairing Notes
A suitable weapon to take on that tangy barbecue sauce or an unruly blue cheese.
