The 2002 Old Vine Zinfandel is comprised of the best selection of Old Vine vineyard lots in the valley, each adding its own nuance and complexity to the final blend. The 2002 Old Vine Zinfandel is deep ruby in color. The bouquet consists of brown sugar, caramel, sage, eucalyptus, and bursting with dark berry fruit. The flavor is a sumptuous blend of warm blackberries on the forward, with a hint of dried fruit, finishing with sweet fleshy tannins. Our Old Vine Zinfandel is a distinctive Zinfandel from over a dozen of Amador County's oldest and most venerable vineyards. With an average age of at least 50 years, these head pruned low-yielding sites provide us with a wonderful selection of even ripened concentrated Zinfandel fruit that gives us great complexity and depth.
