Exuberant berry notes jump from the glass and fold into briar and wood spice. Juicy entry leads to a palate of ripe red fruit, structured by cocoa-like tannins. Finishes with red apple and a hint of vanilla bean.
Recognizing the exceptional quality of the fruit, Rich Parducci's family began working with the Chase family nearly five decades ago and selected this vineyard to make McNab Ridge’s inaugural Zinfandel in 2002.
This beautiful wine is a tribute to the patriarch of our family, Richard Herman Mattern. Our vines are planted on the Heart Arrow Ranch at 2000 ft. above sea level and just 23 miles as the crow flies from the Pacific Ocean. Warm sunny days and cool afternoon winds produce a wine with concentrated flavors and balanced acidity. We hope you enjoy this classic Zin as much as we do!
