Winemaker's Notes:

The 2004 Old Vine Zinfandel is comprised of the best selection of Renwood's Old Vine vineyard lots, each adding its own nuance and complexity to the final blend. The 2004 Old Vine Zinfandel is dark ruby in color. The bouquet consists of cranberry, allspice, nutmeg and blackberry compote. The flavor has ripe berry fruit on the entry, following with the medley of holiday spices, and finishing with chalky tannins and the vanilla bean from the American oak.

About Renwood Winery:

Surrounded by some of America's oldest Zinfandel vineyards, Renwood Winery is located in the picturesque California foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Renwood produces world-class award winning wines from Amador County and the Sierra Foothills. Boston native Robert Smerling founded Renwood in 1993. Mr. Smerling fell in love with Amador County’s rich history and magnificent vineyards. A plan was set in place to build one of America's premier Zinfandel wineries.

Wine production has grown from 2,500 cases in 1993 to over 100,000 cases today. The critics all agree Renwood produces consistently exceptional wines that cover the spectrum from big, bold, jammy Zins to wonderfully balanced Syrahs and Barberas.

Renwood's Grandpere Zinfandel which comes from their Grandpere Vineyards is the oldest known clone of Zinfandel in America. All grapes are handpicked and fermented in small lots, then aged in oak barrels to preserve the unique character of each vineyard.
