2018 Wheelhouse Zinfandel

The Wheelhouse Zinfandel has become known for its ample fruit with nuanced textures, a Paso Robles hallmark. The 2018 vintage is as sleek and flavorful as ever with cranberry and bright cherries up front. It features pomegranate, ripe figs, anise, and vanilla on the nose. Tobacco flavors become apparent and cocoa powder notes appear. The finish stretches delightfully, expressive and quenching to the very end.

2018 Wheelhouse Zinfandel
Winemaker Notes
A Zinfandel house at our roots, Wheelhouse is the blend that put Sextant on the map. Our goal each year is to respect and refine the natural fruit characteristics that Paso Zinfandel, and specifically our Zinfandel from our RBZ Vineyard, has become known for. We blend 18% Syrah to add a bit of tannin to the naturally acidic and fruit forward base of Zinfandel. Aged in 10% new French oak helps add some spice and bring more complexity to the back end of the palate.
