Wine Profile

Tasting Notes Our 100% Zinfandel offers aromas of soft, toasty nuances combined with hints of white pepper.
Vineyard Notes Sourced from the Bailey Ranch Vineyard in the Adelaida District this 20+ year old vineyard is located on the west side of Paso Robles. These vines are planted in Linne-Calodo soils, dry farmed, head trained and certified organic. This site is a step hillside slope 1,000 feet in elevation.
Production Notes This native fermentation started below 70 degrees and remained cool the entire way through peaking at 81 degrees.
Other Notes A portion of the Fighter Pilot Red sales aid the Tailhook Education Foundation - giving military kids scholarships.
