At the Slope, the Zena Crown Vineyard shifts to face primarily south, encouraging perfect ripeness and maximum phenolic development. Symbolizing a winter evening, Slope exhibits flavors of blueberry pie, fresh roasted coffee and morel mushroom. The mid-palate has a weight that is combined with balanced lightness and a red fruit element that almost surprises the taster—it's a bit like a backbeat in a song, once you hear it the song pulls instantly together and requires pressing the repeat button.
