Wine Description

Our 2007 vintage Old Vine Zinfandel is a medium-bodied wine of lush, wellintegrated tannins and crisp, bright acidity. The aroma/flavor profile includes: Kirsch, raspberry preserves, red licorice and dark plums with subtle notes of tobacco, dried hay and cedar. The blend is 86% Zinfandel, 9% Charbono and 5% Mourvedre.

Winemaker's Notes

The grapes were hand-sorted and crushed to stainless steel fermentors.Pumpovers were done as gently as possible to avoid undesirable harsh tanninextraction. Pressed at dryness to 80% French and 20% American oak with acomposition of 35% new oak for both barrel types.
