Zinfandel, ‘Buck Cobb’, Turley

Planted at 1500 feet on the volcanic, granitic hillside near our new property in Amador, the Cobb Vineyard Zinfandel is an homage to Buck Cobb, owner of the vineyard and from whom we purchased the Karly property. The rocky conditions and more extreme weather (including snow!) make for a structured, savory wine. Though fruits run the full gamut from red to blue to black, the wine favors secondary and tertiary flavors: graphite, game and bacon fat, along with characteristic granitic tannins.
