DAY 2017 Sonoma Zinfandel

Day is the new Zinfandel project of Ehren Jordan, the mastermind behind such amazing labels as Turley, Neyers, and Failla.  (Check out this article from when San Francisco Chronicle named him their Winemaker of the Year.)

When Ehren purchased a St. Helena property back in 2004, he knew he wanted to plant grapes on the hillside that, at the time, contained an apple orchard.  After a few years of pondering, he decided that the locale was ideal for one of his early loves in the vine world – Zinfandel.

Four acres are currently planted, with the original vines hitting the dirt in 2011.  Roughly 95% Zinfandel, 5% Petite Sirah.  Offering loads of plums, black raspberries, spice, and classic cedar notes. This medium to full-bodied, rounded, charming barrel sample is going to drink nicely right out of the gate yet keep for a decade.

Reg. $30, on special at $25.95.
