Tres Sabores


5 cases produced


  • A savory, balanced Zinfandel with a vibrant personality
  • Drawn from legendary vineyard sources, the individual lots were hand-harvested over multiple weeks from 50-year-old, dry-farmed, organic, estate vineyard
  • Once at the wineries, the lots were kept separate, vinified and aging individually before each lot destemmed to small bins, 50% native ferment on site
  • After final blending, the wine was racked back into new French oak barrels for aging; 30% new oak, blended for PNV January 2024


I’d like to introduce you to the 2022 vintage of the grape that inspires me - the wine that has defined and sustained Tres Sabores for 24 vintages now: Zinfandel! With ravishing aromas and flavors, its brambleberry, pepper, sublime balance and ‘never really tasted a Zinfandel quite like this’ character craves the company of the table. This PNV selection is not only a composition of the best lots in our cellar, but a celebration of the vineyard’s 50th year! Indeed, as planted on our west-Rutherford alluvial fan, minimally cultivated, organically certified and dry-farmed ranch, this heritage varietal shines with verve, savory elegance and a certain ‘Jazz Club’ vibe.

Winemaker, Julie Johnson

I married a winemaker. Then I married another winemaker. They both make great wine and I've learned a great deal through a 30-year-long process of love and osmosis (and personal gumption, I guess!)

I was encouraged to start making wine in 2001 - "Don't you think it's about time that you start making the wine (from your front yard)?", he said.

Country born: United States

Education: Pre-med, Bowdoin College
Public Health & Public Health Nursing, Columbia University
Numerous classes
Lots of sweat equity

Years in the wine industry: 30+ years

Honors / Awards:
Gerald Asher just called my 2007 Rutherford Perspective estate Cabernet "impeccable, with a perfect balance, complete." That's pretty wonderful feedback from my point of view.

Winemaking Philosophy:
Act as a steward for the terroir and let it speak to you. Make the wine you personally love to drink.
