Winemaker's Notes:

David Georges' viticulture experience helps him select the optimal time to harvest the grapes from the Oakley Old Zinfandel Vines that provide the base for this wine. He enjoys dusting the distinctive red sand from his boots as he walks the vineyard during harvest each year. Long hot days balanced by the cool San Francisco bay fog each night create the optimal environment to grow Zinfandel. Being from Old Vines, the yield from each harvest is naturally limited, which translates into intense fruit flavors. Combining cool fermentation and American oak barrel aging techniques creates a versatile wine that delivers plum jam flavors, with spice and dry herb notes from the American oak, and food-friendly alcohol levels that deliver a firm but not over-powering finish.
My Notes:

About Boho Vineyards:

Old Vine Zinfandel showcases the best of what California Zinfandel vineyards have to offer in every glass: vibrant color, intense fruit flavors in a full-bodied wine with well-managed tannins that provide a lingering finish. Making the most of what California land delivers has always inspired artisan winemaker, David Georges. After starting his career at a California organic vegetable farm that planted a small vineyard, David was inspired to study viticulture at UC Davis. At Davis, he discovered that he enjoyed winemaking as much as vineyard management, and graduated with a dual degree. "Winemaking allows me to bring my passion for nature, art and science together every day. With Boho, I really enjoy the harmony created by the youthful expressiveness typical of Zinfandel fruit and the distinguished character from the Old Vines."
