The 2006 Vintage will be remembered as the one with heavy rainfall in the winter and cool summer. The long ripening season provided extra "hang time" for the grapes and thus produced wines with great depth and superb structure. Following the abundant 2005 vintage, 2006 had a relatively low yield
contributing to more intense flavor and overall
concentration. The grapes for our 2006 La Storia blend were harvested at the end of September and the first week of October from blocks 303 and 315; all head prunes vines. As usual the grapes fermented in 60% closed top and 40% open top tanks. After primary fermentation the wine was racked in 45 new barrels for malolactic
fermentation. Prior bottling 12% Petite Sirah was
blended with the Zin for structure enhancement.
The wine has an intense nose of dark cherries and currants with brown sugar, maple and a slightly toasted aroma courtesy of the new oak barrels. The mouth feel is
medium to heavy with a slightly, sweet long finish.
Overall '06 is another great example of the consistently high quality Zins made from our Geyserville Estate year after year. Age for 3 to 5 years.
"The dark ruby-hued 2006 Zinfandel La Storia reveals a big, spicy, peppery, briery-scented nose, medium to full body, soft tannins, and admirable purity and density. It is best drunk over the next 3-4 years.

Now more than 35 years old, these vines are among the oldest producing Carignane vineyards in America. The family remains steadfastly devoted to this grape, and their wine ranks indisputably among just a handful of top ranked California Carignane.
Twice as large as Napa in size, Sonoma County only makes about a half the amount of wine as her northeasterly neighbor. But Sonoma, with her size, is able to vouch for more diversity within her borders, including sub-AVAs that are climatically varied. 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.
