Wine.comIn 1957, our family purchased 56 acres in the heart of Dry Creek alley. Since the early 1900s, our fathers had purchased fruit from rowers in this Valley and recognized the area's great potential for infandel. Here, late afternoon coastal cooling follows long hours f sunshine and enables the fruit to mature slowly during the ummer months. ortina, the dominant soil type of our vineyard, is a gravelly loam hat contributes to Dry Creek Valley's reputation as one of the finest places in the world to grow Zinfandel. We know it takes superior fruit to make fine wine and that Mother Nature greatly influencesthe success of each vintage. In 2002, Mother Nature worked late to help produce exceptionalfruit with intense varietal flavor. t harvest, deeply colored and evenly ripened fruit was macerated and fermented for optimalbalance of fruitiness and tannin content. These astringent tannins decrease during agingadding suppleness to the wine. Cortina's indelible spicy, white pepper impression isintrinsically assimilated from the surrounding aura that resides over this site. Brieryraspberries, cherries and currants emerge convincingly, adding dimension and interest. --- Ted Seghesio
