Winemaker Tasting Notes
Bramble, raspberry, cassis, toasted oak, and floral aromas; layered black cherry and currant, full bodied with well coated tannins and notes of licorice and black olive on the finish.

Summer temperatures were again well below normal, slowing ripening. Unlike 2010, there was no late-season heat to boost sugar levels. Patience was called for. Picking began on September 20, three weeks later than usual. After natural primary and secondary fermentation, twenty-three parcels most typical of Lytton Springs were combined. Fine tannins, moderate ripeness, and bright, focused fruit are hallmarks of the vintage. This elegant zinfandel is enjoyable now, and has the structure to evolve over the next eight to ten years.
