A blend of 80% Zinfandel, 16% Petite Syrah and
After long, hard rains in March, budbreak came
by mid-April. In late July, extreme temperatures
sunburned the west-facing blocks. These are
planted predominantly to petite sirah, which

Springs was barrel aged for a full fifteen months.
Approachable now, it has the structure to be

The atmosphere of Sonoma is decidedly laid back and down home country style. But in wines, they are keeping up with the...Read More About Sonoma County
Zinfandel the American - or Californian - grape. Although it's not from America
(Croatia has been named its origin),
it does seem quite at home in the vineyards of California.
During Prohibition, many
