Tasting Notes
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.

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.

Winemaker Notes
“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
