Winemaker's Notes

Zéphirine has a deep, rosewood color. On the nose, there is clear energy, and layers upon layers of violets, delicate roses, small berries and brush. On the palate, there is a wealth of blue and black fruit flavors balanced by excellent structure and fine tannins. As a whole, Zéphirine exudes complexity and refinement, and leads to a very long, satisfying finish. It will be lovely to experience as it ages over the next 8-10 years or more.

James Suckling "A juicy and intense wine with with lots of plum, chocolate and cedar undertones. Full-bodied and velvety. Pretty, gorgeous, racy and just so fine. Love the fruit and texture. "

Wine SpectatorSupple and vibrant, with gracefully complex dark cherry, orange peel and herbal tea flavors that build structure toward refined tannins. Drink now through 2025. 1,350 cases made.

Vinous "Brilliant red. Ripe red and blue fruits, candied flowers, incense and a hint of licorice on the deeply perfumed nose. A spine of juicy acidity provides lift and structure to sweet raspberry and boysenberry flavors that open up slowly on the back half. Delivers a suave blend of power and finesse and finishes impressively long, showing resonating red fruit character and sneaky, harmonious tannins."

Wine EnthusiastThis wine is from the winery's lone Eola-Amity Hills vineyard. Named for a species of climbing rose, this new vintage brings striated veins of brambly berry and peppery herb. There's a whiff of asparagus, and the flavors are less ripe than in recent years. This is an interesting, well-balanced wine that does indeed reference a different set of growing conditions.
