Tres Sabores

Zinfandel
Rutherford

5 cases produced

Highlights

  • Estate grown on the western Rutherford Bench; planted in 1971, dry farmed, organically certified
  • Aging for 20 months in 30% new French oak (Billon, Boutes, Sylvain); flavors of rich blackberry, deep plum, fresh ground white pepper
  • Winemaker Julie Johnson will visit you and celebrate the arrival of the wine with your customers
  • An exclusive wild-ferment wine from the Rutherford nested appellation; rarefied territory for Zinfandel

The Rutherford nested appellation has become rarefied territory for Zinfandel. This wine is generous, even lavish, in its true-to-terroir Rutherford Dust origins - yet it's floral, lovely and elegant. The aromatics are out of this world and set the stage for what follows: rich, dark raspberry vibrating across the palate, seamlessly incorporating the sweet spices of wild-yeast ferments. Mouthwatering with pomegranate piquancy, balance in body and tannin with just enough oak to buoy the fruit.

Winemaker, Tres Sabores

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.
