Zinfandel

Planted in 1970, this hillside vineyard is located on a steep and rocky slope on our estate at the northern end of Russian River Valley. We dry-farm these gnarled vines to produce small and compact clusters with incredible fruit intensity with bright acidity. After cluster sorting, destemming and berry sorting, this wine was fermented utilizing open-top fermentation and then aged in thin staved Bordeaux barrels on
fine lees, without racking.

This wine exhibits lively aromas of vine-ripened blackberries, mulberry and baking spices. On the palate the wine's exuberant boysenberry fruit is in perfect harmony with bright acidity, fine grained tannin and a spice-laden finish.
