Tasting notes

Spicy toffee, rich dark chocolate, coffee and traces of overripe fruit arouse the senses.  This complex “Port Style” late harvest Zinfandel is aged in heavy toast American Oak, set up in a solera style aging process before being bottled, lending itself to rich complexity and consistent essences. Very limited production.

Production notes

Solera - Spanish for "from the floor". The solera system was started in Spain for their production of Sherry. There are many soleras in Spain that are over 100 years old. What makes the solera so unique, it is never emptied. We only draw about 1/3 from the barrel and the other 2/3 remains for the next year. We have four barrels in each solera. The last barrel is called the Solera, and the other 3 barrels are called, Criaderas, "nurseries". The wine for bottling is drawn from the solera and the wine from the criadera refills the solera. The criadera above that refills, and so on. The new wine from the production year goes in the first criadera. The result is a tawny port that is rich, full of flavor and is nearly indestuctable to time. 

This solera was started in 2002 and is nearing its 20 birthday.
