From the Winery: "We’ve been making Zinfandel from Dry Creek Valley for over 30 years, and we’ve spent that time honing our Zinfandel technique to a sharp point. Our goal is to make a Zinfandel that is unmistakably Dry Creek yet built on the foundation of old world wine chemistry--above average acidity, firm tannin, medium alcohol--and the aging potential that comes with those key attributes."

Tasting Note: "Blackberry cobbler, olallaberry pie, rambunctious Dry Creek bramble, dusty July afternoons, spice cabinet, red dirt. Firm, rising mid-palate with a sloped plateau to a sweeping medium finish. 14.9% alcohol.

Vineyard: "The Zinfandel from this vineyard is sourced from bench land about halfway up the east side of Dry Creek Valley. These old, head-trained vines produce limited crop of classic Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel fruit: big clusters, dark color, slightly inconsistent ripeness (a good thing!), and big character.There’s something about making Zinfandel from gnarled, old vines that makes us extra happy."

Winemaking: "Sub-50° F 11-day cold soak, tank fermented with pump overs twice daily, 20 day cold ferment. Two week extended maceration."

Aging: 27 months in mixed once-used and neutral French and American oak.

Cases Produced: 209
