2017 Zinfandel

HORSE HEAVEN HILLS

The 2017 vintage was a difficult one to start, coming off one of the coldest winters in Eastern Washington’s history. Despite a late frost, our fruit survived. As spring turned into summer, Mother Nature delivered an ideal growing season, long enough for the fruit to fully ripen and short enough to ensure we could harvest before poor weather arrived
