Our Ancient Vines Zinfandel shows the sumptuous strawberry character that Zinfandel is known for. Well balanced and fresh, with just a touch of vanilla and light toast, make for a very special glass of wine. Enjoy now or cellar for 5 to 7 years.
Our Ancient Vines Zinfandel draws primarily from a wide selection of our oldest, most historic and shyest-bearing Zinfandel blocks in Contra Costa County. These ancient, dry-farmed vineyards consistently produce fruit of stunning concentration.
Lots were harvested separately according to ripeness and balance of acidity. Grapes underwent near total destemming and a very gentle crushing to ensure a large proportion of whole berries in the must, contributing to the explosive fruit character of the wine. The grapes, juice, skins, and seeds (called “must”) along with some added yeasts were fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks at the optimum temperature to extract rich flavours and provide excellent colour. The wine was pressed off its skins at dryness and racked gently before being laid down on American oak for 10 months.
