This 100% Cabernet Sauvignon was produced with our finest organically farmed vineyard lots in Napa Valley. It is an exceptional example of ZD’s long-held belief in the art of blending, and how different sites can produce a wine that exceeds its individual parts. Each vineyard lot was fermented and barrel aged separately for one year before blending, and aged for an additional two years in American Oak.
With ZD’s own certified organic Rutherford Estate as the backbone, this wine is showing beautifully now, but will also age gracefully for many years to come. Aromas of cassis, black cherry and dark plum mingle with subtle hints of vanilla, anise, tobacco and a touch of clove. The palate is full, rich, and bursting with dark fruit. Lush, well-balanced tannins carry the wine through to an incredibly long and silky finish. The oak is present but well integrated and gives the wine an added layer of complexity. 23 barrels of this wine were produced. Enjoy!
