2021 Arpad's Selection Zinfandel

The Buena Vista Vinicultural Society, formed in 1863 by the winery's founder, Count Agoston Haraszthy, to further improve its winemaking prowess and expand its vineyards, has been restored as a collection of unique, small-production wines that honor the winery's pioneering spirit and contribution to California winemaking. The Vinicultural Society explores clonal selections, varietals, and the incredible terroir of California's Sonoma County.

Draped in a profound garnet hue, this Zinfandel beckons with an opening act of fragrant black pepper and the alluring presence of dark cherries. As it unfolds on the palate, the wine showcases an intense fruit orchestra, with black plums and blackberries taking center stage, while subtle notes of cracked pepper and an array of exotic spices provide mesmerizing highlights. This elixir boasts a symphony of crisp acidity, tannins as finely tailored as a bespoke suit, and a seductive, lingering finish that captures the imagination.

Named for the Count's third son who valiantly declared that his father was responsible for bringing his beloved Zinfandel grape to Sonoma, this wine is
harvested from a historic vineyard north east of Sonoma. Red volcanic soils, big rocks, and old vines are all trademark characteristics of this vineyard that was originally planted back in the early 1880s. The fruit was harvested on September 28 to October 7 and the wine was aged in 100% French oak, 14% new, for 18 months.
