Born under the sun of costal vineyards in California, cool weather and bright sun produce grapes of pure balance.

The very present fruit of dark plum, cherry, cassis, and hints of cocoa sits well in the mid-palate and has a short but pleasing finish.
Black Fox Cabernet Sauvignon
With its flavors of raspberry, cherry, with hints of cassis, and cedar, Black Fox dances on your tongue with its vibrant tannins, light mouth feel, and a finish that doesn’t linger too long.

Coming to us from some of the oldest Zinfandel plantings in California, the Sierra Trails Old Vine Zinfandel is a complex wine offering aromas of ripe berry, dried plum and red currants. These remarkable fragrances are echoed in the flavoring where a hint tobacco, black pepper spice and sweet oak lifts the fruit and carry them through a lingering finish.
