WSI94+ Stunning. Intense, layered and deep, yet lively as well. Powerful wine. Exhibits a nearly opaque dark purple hue in the glass. Intense aromatic notes suggesting concentrated dark fruit, baking spices and crushed violets. The palate experience is layered with dense mouthfeel of blackberry and blueberry jam, tar and earth. The mouthfeel is viscous, coating and maintains an extended mouth-watering finish.
Combining the power of Mountain-grown Zinfandel with the voluptuous texture of Calistoga Petite Sirah can be magical. Mending Wall Mortar and Stone is a stunning example of this. The Zinfandel arose from the iconic Aida Vineyard atop Altas Peak, and the Petite Sirah comes from one of the most celebrated vineyards for that varietal in the New World, which was the former source for Carver Sutro.
This tiny production, proprietary blend harnesses the power and intensely concentrated flavors of Atlas Peak Zinfandel with the showy, voluptuous textures of Petite Sirah in way that pulls on the best qualities of both varietals in total harmony. 255 cases produced. 70% 2019 Zinfandel and 30% 2020 Petite Sirah.
