Highlights

  • We made this wine in the style of Zinfandel that Joe’s grandfather loved to drink
  • Sourced from some of Napa Valley’s most noteworthy Zinfandel vineyards; both old and younger vines
  • We blended in 6% Petite Sirah for added complexity, backbone and structure
  • Grapes picked at optimal ripeness, extended maceration, then aged 12 months in French and American oak

In making this Zinfandel, we had the pleasure to work with some of the region’s most noteworthy Zinfandel vineyards. From vines planted high on Alas Peak to gravelly-soil vineyards in eastern Calistoga on the valley floor, each site we worked with had an impact on the blend. This is the style of Zinfandel that Joe Wagner grew up drinking, like the wine his grandfather Charlie Wagner made; first in 1972.

Winemaker, Beran

Winemaker, Joe Wagner

As a fifth generation Napa Valley winemaker, Joe learned his way around a vineyard long before he was able to drink wine. By the time he was 19 he knew that he would continue his family's winemaking legacy, working alongside his father at Caymus Vineyards. In 2001, he created Belle Glos, with a focus on vineyard-designated Pinot Noirs from throughout California's best coastal regions.
More recently, he has launched a number of new brands under Copper Cane Wines & Provisions. Joe has a keen interest in contributing to the evolution of the wine industry, by discovering new wine growing locations and through experimentation in the cellar.
Joe lives in Napa Valley, has six children, and maintains a healthy balance between his family life and a passionate dedication to his business.
