Winemaker's Notes

What is Heritage Clone Zinfandel? By grafting budwood from a pre-Prohibition era vineyard onto new rootstock, we have preserved the classic characteristics of Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel. Luscious raspberry and cherry aromas precede intriguing baking spices notes.

Pair this wine with rustic Italian cuisine, hamburgers, barbecued meats, or cedar plank salmon.
