Winemaker's Notes:

The odd lots of old vine fruit that do not fit in with any of the single vineyard wines are combined to produce the 2009 Zinfandel Old Vines. Its dark plum/ruby hue is followed by sweet aromas of briery berry fruit, herbs, incense, underbrush and soil undertones. This delicious, medium to full-bodied effort should drink well for 4-5 years.
