2005 L'Etranger Zinfandel

Sonoma County

Our 2005 L’Etranger is the follow-up to our 2004 Zinfandel based blend which we called Last Leg Cuvee. In 2005, we replaced the Zinfandel component, which previously came from the Broken Leg Vineyard, with Zinfandel from the famed Teldeschi Vineyard. The blend remains 60% Zinfandel, 35% Syrah (from Las Madres Vineyard) and 5% Petite Syrah (from Eaglepoint Ranch). This wine combines the spicy peppery flavors and up-front blueberry, blackberry, and raspberry fruit of Zinfandel with the mid-palette weight of a Syrah and the tannins and structure of Petite Syrah. Enjoy over a barbeque or red meat over the next 3-4 years.
