The 1999 Ironstone Vineyards Zinfandel is selected from head-trained, old vines. This traditional viticultural practice produces grapes characteristically known for exceptional, concentrated flavors and unprecedented, unique depth. Flavors of boysenberries and cherries, with fleeting hints of white pepper and cinnamon, are further enhanced by rotary fermentation. Rotary fermenters bring out the succulent fruitiness of fully mature, Lodi Zinfandel grapes. French oak aging provides balance and structure for this full-bodied wine. While enjoyable now, Ironstone Vineyards Zinfandel will further develop with bottle aging.
