Long recognized for its superior red wines, the first Zinfandel was produced from the Jack London Vineyard in 1988." Located on Sonoma Mountain with a southeasterly exposure, the climatic conditions and long, cool growing season of this viticultural area create complexity and balance in the fruit." The influence of the vineyard's red volcanic soil and the fruity characteristics of the grapes combine to produce an excellent, very distinctive Zinfandel.
Harvested from mid to late September, the wine was fermented in stainless steel tanks, and then aged in American and French oak barrels for approximately 15 months.
