NEW RELEASE! We are pleased to release our 2015 vintage of Vino Tinto, a perennial favorite. It is fragrant blend of Zinfandel, Syrah and Petite Sirah produced from 100% Estate Grown fruit. Zinfandel from Block 14 for zest, Syrah for dark, smokey fruit flavors and Petite Sirah for backbone. The result is a dark wine with wonderful fruit expression that is well balanced with a clean finish. Those characteristics plus its solid structure and texture have made it one of our most popular products. (We also think it has an appealing price, to boot.
