The Character

Overall Fruity with oaky spice
Aromas Ripe strawberries, Bing cherries, red plums, cocoa powder, vanilla bean, raspberry, cherry cola

Tasting Notes Wheelhouse Zinfandel is bursting with aromas of vine ripe strawberries, Bing cherries, and red plums that scream Paso Robles Zinfandel. Furthermore, hints of cocoa powder and fresh vanilla bean add layers and depth to the aroma. Raspberry like acidity on the front palate leads to a silky, cherry cola essence mid palate. The oak shines through on the finish leaving you with pleasant toasty vanilla hints.
Selling Point The blend that put Sextant on the map!

The Story

We handpicked Zinfandel, Syrah and Petite Sirah from our estate RBZ Vineyard and separately fermented each varietal in stainless steel before aging in French oak. The use of 25% new French oak allows the naturally fruity aromas of Zinfandel to shine, while bringing in light hints of oaky spice. A splash of Syrah and Petite Sirah are blended in before bottling to build tannin, structure, and bring a bit more depth to the finish.
