    Winemaker Notes

    The grapes derive almost exclusively from ancient vines in the thermically overachieving Sacramento Delta. The secret of old vines is that they can, in principle, owing to their deep roots, more or less always keep their cool. We permitted the wines to attain a fairly advanced level of ripeness and actually reduced the alcohol by a process called the "spinning cone." The result is a wine that possesses the full and fully mature flavors of ripe grapes but with an intense berry character, powerful tannin, a zin not to be trifled with.

    Cardinal Zin, California
    Cardinal Zin Winery Image
    The makers of Cardinal Zin are zealous believers in the decadent and forbidden flavors of their sinfully delicious Zinfandel. Grown from Beastly Old Vines (vines in the ground for 20+ years), this wine elicits fervent, fecund and frenzied tongue enveloping pleasures. A wine of substance, it's a Cardinal Zin not to drink at the altar of this decadent, rich and spicy old vine Zinfandel.

    The largest and perhaps most varied of California’s wine-growing regions, the Central Coast produces a good majority of the state's wine. This vast California wine district stretches from San Francisco all the way to Santa Barbara along the coast, and reaches inland nearly all the way to the Central Valley.

    Encompassing an extremely diverse array of climates, soil types and wine styles, it contains many smaller sub-AVAs, including San Francisco Bay, Monterey, the Santa Cruz Mountains, Paso Robles, Edna Valley, Santa Ynez Valley and Santa Maria Valley.

    While the Central Coast California wine region could probably support almost any major grape varietiy, it is famous for a few Central Coast reds and whites. Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel are among the major ones. The Central Coast is home to many of the state's small, artisanal wineries crafting unique, high-quality wines, as well as larger producers also making exceptional wines.

    Unapologetically bold, spice-driven and jammy, Zinfandel has secured its title as the darling of California vintners by adapting well to the state's diverse microclimates and landscapes. Born in Croatia, it later made its way to southern Italy where it was named Primitivo. Fortunately, the imperial nursery of Vienna catalogued specimens of the vine, and it later made its way to New England in 1829. Parading the true American spirit, Zinfandel found a new home in California during the Gold Rush of 1849. Somm Secret—California's ancient vines of Zinfandel are those that survived the neglect of Prohibition; today these vines produce the most concentrated, ethereal and complex examples.
