Tasting Notes

Enters with subtle notes of briar and spice which quickly give way to aromas of raspberry liqueur. This robust Zinfandel offers layers of blackberry and black cherry fruit. A warm, luscious finish lingers on with sweet vanilla oak flavors.

Winemaker Notes

Lava Cap is regarded as one of the premier Zinfandel producers in the Sierra Foothills. Our estate grapes are handpicked at their peak of ripeness, yielding fruit with clean, soft pulp, brown seeds (indicative of gentle tannins), and pure fresh flavors. Aged 20 months in American and French oak barrels.
