Grapes for the Napa Cellars 2017 Zinfandel are hand-selected from vineyards invthe warmer areas of Napa Valley, including St. Helena, Yountville, Oak Knoll and Calistoga. Zinfandel grows best in warmer climates, and sourcing grapes from these areas results in complex and concentrated fruit. Zinfandel is not nearly as ubiquitous as Cabernet Sauvignon in Napa Valley, and makes up roughly 2% of total acreage.

After a cold soak designed to extract color from the skins, the grapes were pressed early to avoid extracting harsh tannins. Following a 12 to 18-day maceration period and fermented with the délestage method, the lots were aged in 28% new French and American oak barrels for 17 months. The partial use of new oak helps preserve the big Zinfandel flavors, while still imparting warm, spicy characteristics to create an elegant and balanced wine.
