All old vine “Nichelini Vineyard” Chiles Valley (eastern Napa Valley hills) fruit. This is a Killer Zin! Intense, very concentrated briary red berries with lots of black & white pepper, roast red chili and faint rosemary smells and flavors. The big, bad, bold fruit is the star of this show ultimately. And just the shear intensity of the wine. Light on the oak and has medium acidity to bring out the Zin fruit even more. This is an absolute no-brainer for Zinfandel lovers!


Owned and made by Derek Beitler, long-time Napan who grew up in the winemaking business. His Cerro wines are tiny-production, single vineyard wines that always very strong, intense, well-made, multi-layered and ready to enjoy. Also factor in how little is made (100-300 cases of each wine typically), they are ridiculously good values! Check out all of Derek’s wines on his website.
