Winemaker Notes
Our 2016 Patty’s Patch Zinfandel is sure to grip your palate! It is distinguished by having a remarkable brambleberry and black prune bouquet coupled with white pepper and toffee. On the palate there is an explosion of bramble, black cherry, and black prune finishing with a hint of caramel and a firm natural acidity.

Production Notes
The vineyards of Foley Sonoma lie at the heart of our estate in the Alexander Valley. Patty’s Patch Zinfandel hails from our estate, head-pruned Zinfandel vines that were planted in 2000. Following harvest, the grapes were fermented in stainless steel tanks and then racked to French and American oak barrels. After aging for 21 months in barrel (30% new) with regular lees stirring, the wine was bottled.
Vineyard Notes
2016 was a superb vintage in Alexander Valley. Although yields were slightly lower than in 2015, fruit quality was high across all varietals. Veraison set in early and completed by the end of July - beginning of August, and a week of warm temperatures pushed harvest up ahead of schedule. The fruit for this 2016 Zinfandel was harvested September 1 - October 13, 2016 and entered the crush pad in optimal condition.
