Winemaker Notes

Mead Ranch is planted at about 1600 feet on Atlas Peak, on the south eastern side of Napa Valley. The vineyard was originally planted in 1880, though our block is primarily from 1970. This vineyard is head-trained, planted in red volcanic soil. On a clear day you can see San Francisco; though those are few and far between, and thus this vineyard sees plenty of fog from the bay. Thicker skins and smaller berries make for solid tannin and the coolness of the site lends acidity to the balanced, dark blue fruit.

RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2011 Zinfandel Mead Ranch needs time in the glass to come together. Still a bit disjointed and raw, the Mead Ranch possesses good inner sweetness and definition in its exotic aromas and flavors. This is a pretty effort, even if at times the wine appears to be a bit fragile. With time in the glass the Mead Ranch continued to improve, which makes me hopeful for the future. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2018. Range: 89-91

Unapologetically bold, spice-driven and jammy, Zinfandel has secured it’s title as the darling of California vintners by adapting well to the states’ 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, which sourced a journey 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.
