A scent experts know as “La Nez” (the nose) would be in berry heaven with this wine. Hearty dark fruit aromas are confirmed in the waves of luscious flavors (think of extra ripe blackberries, boysenberries and olallieberries) that saturate your palate with a super-rich quality, approaching fruit preserves improved with sweet baking spices. The wine captures remembrances of grandmother’s berry cobbler cooling in the window sill, finishing with a brooding soft succulence accented by shavings of milk chocolate and cedarwood. 

Heaton Ranch is a 130 acre family Estate in the Willow Creek sub AVA of Paso Robles.  Their Zinfandel block, established in 2004, is dry farmed in traditional “bush vine” style on chalk rock soils. Prized as a source of high-quality grapes, this grower/farmer has a waiting list of clients. Adelaida was fortunate to acquire this fruit in a year where we experienced a reduced crop from our own Michael’s Estate vineyard. Dry land farming is a labor intensive soil tillage technique which involves breaking up (disking) the soil, using the winter cover crop as a natural fertilizer followed by rolling and light compaction to maintain natural moisture. Lacking irrigation, vines search deep into the soil crevices for sustenance at the expense of quantity. Fruit concentration is maximized from the resulting small grapes with higher skin to juice ratios.
