2012 Single Vineyard Two Bud Zinfandel

Perched along the ridge top at the upper reaches of High Valley, Shannon Ridge overlooks Clear Lake and Mt. Konocti. Two buds per spur, hence the vineyard designation Two Bud. The unique combination of soil composition and micro climate of a singular plot of ground (terroir) is the genesis of the distinctive character of our Single Vineyard Collection wines.

Tasting Notes
