Winemaker's Notes

Located in the Russian River Valley, this vineyard is comprised of seven separate blocks of well draining loam and clay soils which are all planted to various percentages of Zinfandel, Petite Syrah and Alicante Bouschet, some as early as 1858. All are head trained with an overhead 2-wire trellis system. The wines created from this vineyard are big and fruity with many different levels of complexities. Varietals: 78% Zinfandel, 12% Petite Syrah, 10% Alicante Bouschet Appellation: Russian River Valley, Sonoma County Alcohol: 15.0% Cases produced: 120 Comments: Opaque purple color, aromas of wild berries, spice and vanilla with subtle touches of roasted herbs and smoke. An incredible lush and concentrated wine whose flavors of blueberries and raspberries are intertwined with cinnamon and spice to complete the experience. Perfect for grilled meats, stews and artery clogging cheeses.
