This vineyard is located almost 1400 feet above the Napa Valley on the eastern slope of the Vaca range. The sparse producing vines are grafted to the 100-year old Hambrecht clone of Zinfandel. The hillside location, sparse production, small berries, and mountain climate adds a tremendous intensity to the wine. This exotic mountain Zinfandel exhibits ripe cherries and blackberries with hints of dark currants, Asian spices and vanilla. It has a good tannin and acid backbone, which makes cellaring for 5-7 years a worthwhile effort. It definitely is a Zinfandel that will roar when you pair it with a Rack of Lamb or grilled Venison.
