Zinfandel is the California grape. It originated in Croatia, but it has been grown in California for so long that it has morphed into a uniquely California wine grape. This blend uses Zinfandel from two of our favorite vineyards: Los Chamizal, and Buchignani/Garcia. We added Syrah to accentuate the lower palate flavors and Cabernet Franc to lift the profile and add chocolate notes. Special winemaking techniques including whole berry fermentation in small lots, and 48 months of carefully-monitored barrel aging in Pennsylvania Oak barrels in our cave makes it uniquely Deerfield.
