The winery writes, "The 2014 Zinfandel is from the Montecillo Vineyard, an old vine head-trained vineyard located high above the Sonoma Valley on the western flanks of the Mayacamas Mountains. The grapes were harvested on September 6 (an early harvest) and crushed into small tanks where the wine fermented for 12 days undergoing 3 punch downs per day for color extraction, then basket pressed.
We picked a small amount of Russian River Valley Petite Sirah and fermented it separately. Two percent of the Petite Sirah was blended into the zinfandel, then the wine went into 25% new and 75% used French Oak barrels for 22 months before being bottled on July 20, 2016. A total of 150 cases of the 2014 Zinfandel were produced."
Tasting Notes: "Deep red color, with a brambly black fruit and French Oak nose redolent of a mountain zinfandel. On the palate, bright red raspberry fruit with subtle oak and a well balanced acid finish. This is a sterling example of an old vine mountain zinfandel."
