The Westphall Ridge Vineyard is located at nearly 1,400-ft. elevation in the Rockpile appellation which is the highest in elevation of all of our single vineyard wines. This vineyard is characterized by its western sun exposures, red volcanic soil and steep slope. The sun exposure provides phenolic maturity without overripe flavors. The soil composition and extreme slope are what really set this Zinfandel apart, continually yielding intense floral notes layered with an iron minerality. 
 
The nose is a blend of high-toned red fruit and earthen spice with an exotic floral component. On the palate, flavors of fresh raspberry and rose hip are complemented by nuances of sweet oak and white pepper. The 2012 vintage is more powerful than previous versions: The entry is round and lush with silky tannins. There is a refined elegance to this Zinfandel and it finishes with beautifully balanced acidity. Enjoy the 2012 Westphall Ridge Vineyard over the next 5-7 years.
