2020 Wheelhouse Zinfandel
The 2020 Wheelhouse Zinfandel is bursting with fruit aromas of vine-ripe strawberries, Bing cherries, and red plums that scream Paso Zinfandel. Furthermore, hints of cocoa powder and fresh vanilla bean add layers and depth to the aroma. Raspberry-like acidity on the front palate leads to a silky, cherry cola essence mid-palate. Finally, the oak shines through on the finish leaving you with a pleasant toasty vanilla aftertaste that will bring you back for more!

For our 2020 Wheelhouse Zinfandel, we handpicked Zinfandel, Syrah, and Petite Sirah from our estate RBZ Vineyard and separately fermented each varietal in stainless steel before aging in French oak. The use of 15% new French oak allows the naturally fruity aromas of Zinfandel to shine while bringing in light hints of oaky spice. Splashes of Syrah and Petite Sirah are blended in before bottling to build tannin and structure, bringing a bit more depth to the finish.
