VINTAGE

The Alitia (a-LEE-sha) vineyard zinfandel is the most graceful zinfandel we produce. In 2014, a major forest fire came right to the edge of this vineyard. Along with extended drought conditions, low yields, and dry-farming techniques, this wine is concentrated yet elegant on the palette.

VINEYARD

The Alitia vineyard was planted in 1984.  The vineyard was expanded in 2000 with cuttings from the original vineyard. Organic, dry-farmed, 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, and white pepper combine with elegant tannins to produce a flavorful Zin with a lasting finish. Enjoy!
