After several years of drought, the 2017 growing season was strong with a cool, slow harvest which allowed red grapes to ripen gradually developing an aromatic, expressive wine with balanced, refreshing acidity.
This is a fruit-driven wine with lifted aromas and flavors of juicy boysenberry, Bing cherry, warm spices, white pepper, vanilla and sweet toasty oak. The voluminous mouthfeel combines with velvety tannins and balanced acidity, and leads to a long, flavorful finish. This wine is special because it is becoming more and more rare to find Zinfandel in the Napa Valley. Wines from Oak Knoll have a bright character with elegant notes.
This limited production of only 100 cases spent 18 months on 40% new French oak. The aging pontential is 5-8 years.
Jamieson Ranch Vineyards is named after an historic rancher who helped to settle the Napa Valley. Today, we pay homage to the rich ranching tradition of the Napa Valley through the names of our wines. The name Versada means to traverse or travel, and we honor the ranchers, cowboys and horses that traveled to the American West and played an important role in making the Napa Valley what it is today. Like those horses, our Versada wines are commanding and elegant.
