Tasting Notes

A unique blend of Syrah, Mourvedre, and Zinfandel meant to excite the taste buds and pair with a wide variety of tapas or small bites, or just by itself.  As with most ziplines, this wine will provide a passionate experience and appreciation of these three grapes whiles providing color and spice to whatever is foraged along the way.

Terroir

The grapes in this wine represent a marriage of the best from three vineyards in two counties – all at higher elevations and all benefiting from cool Pacific breezes at night.  Petite Sirah grapes are from Amber View Vineyard in northern Lake County, while the Cab/Merlot/Cab Franc come from Wild Diamond Vineyard in the southern part of the County.  The Petite Sirah has bigger tannins and dark, dense fruit while the Cab/Merlot/Cab Franc have softer tannins than many Napa Cab blends to the south.  Both enjoy shorter than normal harvest periods but fully ripe fruit because of their vineyard elevations of over 2,000 feet. The Zinfandel from Firebrick Hill Vineyard to the west, however, enjoys a cooler climate and longer growing season, resulting in a more refined, layered fruit as evident in this wine’s long, silky finish.
