Vintage after vintage, the Sextant Wheelhouse Zinfandel
reveals itself with grace and potency. Delectable blackberries flow freely on
the mid-palate as dark cherries jostle on the back-palate. Inklings of rose
petal, smoky cedar, tobacco, and toasty hazelnut join the profile as well. It
is bold and keen with flavors, but yet so balanced in structure. The acidity
is poised and the tannins are finely integrated giving way to an unrelenting,
enduring, and monumental finish.
With fruit sourced from our RBZ Vineyard, this Zinfandel
was blended with Petite Sirah and Syrah. Aged 20 months in 16% New
Hungarian, French and American oak barrels.
