26 months in French oak, 40% new
Our historic 100-year-old Old Vine Zinfandel block makes up 1.6 acres of our estate vineyards. The winery was essentially built up around these beautiful head trained vines that have been producing beautiful fruit for decades. Following harvest, the grapes were fermented in stainless steel tanks and then racked to French oak barrels. After aging for 26 months in barrel (40% new) with regular lees stirring, the wine was bottled.
2014 was another early and warm vintage. This resulted in prime flavor development of the fruit to display its finest attributes. Overall, the vintage produced grapes of high quality, dense flavors, and balanced acidity. The grapes were harvested on September 10, 2014 at optimum ripeness.
