2017 Distant Past, Red Wine, Calistoga
Not much compares to T-Vine Petite Sirah and Zinfandel so, we decided to make a blend of our two favorite varieties.
Distant Past is a new vintage and blend within our Portrait Series, which pays homage to small-town Americana. It’s our chance to play with and try out different blends and blending techniques from the vineyards we hold dear. Each year, the blend may be a little different, but the story is the same. Hard work and lots of love make for great tasting wine from greatly admired vineyards.
86% Petite Sirah, 14% Zinfandel sourced from the Frediani Vineyard in Calistoga.
Brooding and deep, this wine elicits notes of dark berries, a touch of leather, dusty backroads and cocoa nibs. Rich fruit flavors and grippy tannins cover every inch of the palate with effortlessly integrated complexity.
