Tasting note:

Linger for a moment with the complex aromatics of the Field Blend Zinfandel 2016. So much is going on here, and you could undoubtedly add more to the long list of aromas we've found: black plum, a spoonful of cream, cloves, rose petal, woodshop, cherry pie, the scent of the dry, native grasses that grow between the vines...Highly acidic, with clutching tannins and a silty body, this wine has the structure to age further. Its youth shows in the fruit forwardness of its palate: seedy blackberries, bursting cherries, bay leaf, and bruised, perfume-y plum.

Back label:

Since wines are made in the vineyard, why not plant a vineyard with the final wine in mind? Our neighbors did just that with one acre block containing 495 Zinfandel vines and 165 Petite Sirah vines to create a throw-back "field blend" with brambly dark fruts that intrigue but never overwhelm. Winegrowers: The Hoffman Family | Winemaker: Julian Halasz
