The Impostor is a deliberate blend of varietals from our best vineyards that fit the profile Jeff is looking for each year. Many other winery blends are leftovers from the Single Vineyard production wines, but not here. Jeff finds the profile he is looking for and ferments and ages each varietal separately, until it's time to put together the final blend which is the quality and character that is "The Impostor"
54% Zinfandel, 15% Petite Sirah, 11% Syrah, 6% Mourvèdre, 5% Alicante Bouschet, 4% Grenache, 4% Carignane and 1% Viognier. A fan favorite from vintage to vintage.
Aged 11 months in a combination of neutral French oak, concrete vats and neutral oak foudres.
The palate is loaded with mouth filling Christmas spice and Herbes de Provence floating in and out of the ultra sweet mid-palate and ripe tannin finish.
