VINTAGE

Our 2014 Vintner’s Select is made of 100% zinfandel from a collection of our estate vineyards. The Quartz vineyard serves as the base for the 2014 vintage (50%) with the remaining wine originating from three other vineyards–Alitia, Creekside, and Picnic Hill. The 2014 yield was drastically cut short by a third year of drought, as well as a major forest fire that skimmed the property. The results are a concentrated wine that has been crafted to drink earlier than our vineyard designated Zinfandels.

VINEYARDS

·       Quartz–planted 1990

·       Alitia–planted 1984

·       Creekside–planted 1936

·       Picnic Hill–planted 1896

Each of vineyards are head-pruned and dry-farmed. All vineyards share the same soil type (coarse sandy loam) and are oriented East/West with the exception of Creekside, which runs North/South. All vineyards have southwest sun exposure.

TASTE

Aromas of rhubarb, vanilla, cedar, and rosemary greet the nose.  Ripe cherries, raspberries, and smoked meats blanket the palate along with a mild dose of tannins. Ample acid and oak balance out the finish. Excellent with grilled meats and sweet BBQ sauce.
