VINTAGE

The Alitia (a-Lee-sha) vineyard zinfandel is the most graceful zinfandel we produce. 2015 was the forth year of an extended drought following a very dry 2014. However, the vineyard didn’t experience the heat spikes of other drought years. This led to normal harvest dates with average tonnage resulting in a concentrated wine both in taste and color.

VINEYARD

The Alitia vineyard was planted in 1984. The vineyard was expanded in 2000 with cuttings from the original vineyard. Organic, dryfarmed, head pruned, and meticulously managed crop load create a consistently graceful zinfandel. The soil is primarily comprised of decomposed granite (Sierra soil) on rolling slopes and benefits from daylong sun exposure. Cover crops are utilized for proper nutrient supplementation with minimal tilling.

TASTE

Aromas of black cherries, cola, and black pepper greet the nose. Flavors of ripe cherries, red licorice, black pepper and nutmeg mingle with elegant acidity and a complex oak structure.
