Wine Description

In keeping with the well established Girard style, this Old Vine Zinfandel is a beautifully balanced expression of unique terroir. There's a plethora of ripe red fruit from the old vines. Their natural spiciness is augmented by the judicious use of oak to add complexity. This is a silky, juicy zinfandel which will complement a wide range of foods. The natural acidity makes it a perfect foil to tomato based sauces as well as grilled meats.

WINEMAKER'S NOTE
The grapes were hand-sorted and crushed to stainless steel fermentors. Pumpovers were done as gently as possible to avoid undesirable harsh tannin extraction. Pressed at dryness to 85% French and 15% American oak with a composition of 40% new oak for both barrel types.
