2021 Problem Child

2021 Problem Child

Production Notes
55% Zinfandel, 17% Grenache, 10% Syrah, 8% Carignan, 5% Graciano, 5% Mourvèdre

“I once made a Zinfandel that was troubled in its youth. The more I intervened, the more it got away from me. But after I started practicing patience, the wine turned out great. I called it Problem Child, and I learned a valuable lesson about Zinfandel. It’s a fickle grape and prone to weird fermentations, yet it almost always turns out fine in the end. Just like most problem children.”

Tasting Notes:
Exotic floral aromas of cherry cordial, chapparal and clove spice with enticing feral notes. Vibrant and chewy on the palate with cranberry, blueberry, mineral and white pepper. The finish is flush with fresh acidity and lithe, racy textures.
