2016 Late Harvest Zinfandel
Oakville, Napa Valley
Like when a fine, handmade ring is adorned with a rare gemstone, our 2016 “Jewel” Late Harvest Zinfandel is a beautiful addition to the Eleven Eleven family.
Harvested late in the season in order to soak up some extra sunshine, this delicious dessert wine delivers the light and beautiful sweetness of chocolate covered raspberries alongside a subtle earthy structure. Reminiscent of wild, sun-dried golden berries, this lovely wine has a natural acidity that balances the richness of the fruit.
75% New American Oak
Food Pairing Notes
This deliciously sweet wine is best served as a dessert itself at the end of a beautiful meal. However, a light accompaniment like a chocolate mousse or a shortbread cookie will help extend the flavors of the wine without overindulging on sweetness.

“While new to 11:11, I’ve had the joy to watch these dry-farmed vines mature over the past two decades at my family’s “Saddleback” property in Oakville. Picked at 34 brix and aged quite in 75% new American Oak, this wine is a diamond in the ruff for those who enjoy a “sticky” dessert Zinfandel. I smile both at the thought of making this wine as much as tasting it.” - Kirk Venge, Winemaker
