    Winemaker Notes

    Ruby red in color with the sheen of a tree-ripe cherry our XYZin 10 promises to the eye what it delivers on the palate. A gracious wine, it opens with an attractive aroma of rose petals, juicy pomegranate, and warm brown sugar. Strawberry, and plum fruit dominate the entry and lead to a plush mid-palate redolent of dark cherries and mulberries complemented by earthy dimensions of sandalwood, fresh bay leaf, and chocolate. The bright fruit and soft texture of this wine will be best enjoyed in the first four years after release while the vivid qualities of our young vines are most apparent. Zinfandel complements a wide range of cuisines and this bottling pairs beautifully with tomato-based sauces and the tangy/savory flavors of Southeast Asia dishes.

    XYZin, California

    XYZin celebrates the pioneering spirit of California grape growing by focusing on the heritage grape Zinfandel. It is a versatile and unique grape with an aura about it that holds the rustic appeal of an easy-drinking informal wine. In crafting the wines, the winemaker works with vineyards of multiple ages, clones and training systems, with vines that range in age from 18 to 100+ years.

    Fruit for the Old Vine Zinfandel is sourced from premium lots in Sonoma County, historic Solano plantings, heritage vines in Lodi, and sites in Lake and Mendocino counties where the winery has long term relationships with the growers. The wine offers a spectrum of fruit, spice, and candied flavors typically found in this robust varietal.

    California is a winemaking colossus; by itself it is the fourth largest producer in the world. Red wine accounts for 56% of the total by volume, and red grapes 63% of total acres planted. In addition, a number of California red wines are heralded as being among the most prestigious and sought-after wines in the world.

    While the state’s incredibly diverse geography, soils and microclimates allow for a wide array of styles, the key factor unifying California red wine is the abundance of sunshine and a long, consistent growing season. This leads to well-developed fruit marked both by impressive ripeness and balancing acidity.

    The state’s most famous red wine region, of course, is Napa Valley, where Cabernet Sauvignon reigns as king. But California boasts a wealth of other impressive appellations. The much larger and climatically varied Sonoma County also produces world class California Cabernet, along with wonderful examples of California Pinot Noir and Zinfandel.

    Fine versions of Cabernet and Zinfandel hail from Paso Robles as well, which is also gaining fame with Rhone varietals like Syrah and Grenache. As for Pinot Noir, terrific examples can be found from AVA’s such as Anderson Valley, Carneros, Santa Lucia Highlands and Sta. Rita Hills. Wineries in Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo Counties are making wonderful Syrahs, and the Sierra Foothill appellations are proving to be an experimental hotbed, with Italian and Spanish varietals employed to great effect.

    This of course is a mere sketch. The subject of California red wine is as deep and broad as an ocean, and absolutely a joy to explore!
