Winemaker's Notes

A special wine.com pre-release on this mouthwatering zin! Deeply colored fruit, exhibiting old vine zin's tantalizing black raspberry and black cherry fruit explosion and indigenous dark spice and briery notes. Lush, harmonious, and penetrating.

Each harvest we produce several lots of old vine zinfandel from upper Alexander Valley, Dry Creek Valley's benchlands and Russian River Valley's high plains. These devigorized, low-yielding vines link our family's trade from its very beginnings to today. They personify perseverance, character, and a sense of place.

A vintage to remember. A very even growing season (not too hot, not too cold) slowed the rate of maturation and left the fruit hanging until a timely heatspike in late September fully ripened the fruit. Long hang times under favorable climatic conditions are the cornerstones for successful zinfandel production.
