This wine was blended exhibiting a deep dark cherry flavor. This was done by blending Zinfandel, Petite Sirah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah from our estate grapes with Barbera from the LaGrand vineyard, a small vineyard up the road from Mirador. This blend is referred to as “Tesoros” which translates to “Treasures” in Spanish. This wine highlights treasures of the Fair Play AVA, a grape growing region since the California Gold Rush, yet it is still a relatively unknown, untapped goldmine of high-quality fruit.
