Production Notes
THIS IS THE FIFTH VINTAGE of our Russian River Valley Zinfandel, made exclusively for our wine club and tasting room. The grapes come from our Trenton Road vineyard, in the heart of the Russian River Valley. Primarily planted with Pinot Noir, there is one small block on a west-facing hillside that is tailor-made for Zinfandel, the Lions Ridge West Block. 2017 began with heavy rains in winter, which reinvigorated the vineyards going into bud break. The region had sunny days throughout the spring and summer, and a heat spike in August which propelled the harvest schedule.
