2017 Wheelhouse Zinfandel

Vintage after vintage, the Sextant Wheelhouse Zinfandel reveals itself with grace and potency. Aromas of cranberry, cherry and hints of tobacco and vanilla fill the glass. Delectable figs flow freely on the mid-palate as dark cherries jostle on the back-palate. Inklings of rose petal, smoky cedar, tobacco, and nutmeg join the profile as well. It is bold and keen with flavors, but yet so balanced in structure. The acidity is poised, and the tannins are finely integrated giving way to an unrelenting, enduring, and monumental finish.

2017 Wheelhouse Zinfandel
Winemaker Notes
Wheelhouse is the wine that helped put Sextant on the map, and continues to be a great representation of Paso Robles Zinfandel. Our Wheelhouse Zinfandel always starts with a base of our Estate grown Zinfandel from the El Pomar sub AVA of Paso Robles. Syrah and Petite Sirah off the same vineyard help to add structure and round out the finish on this wine. The 2017 vintage was aged in a mix of French, Hungarian and American oak for 20 months.
