2017 Old Vine Zinfandel, Mendocino County

Gold Medal - West Coast Wine Competition

This gem of an Old Vine Zinfandel was grown on a small, 80-year-old vineyard along the Russian River in Mendocino. Matured vines like these are extremely rare and are sought after; for they produce less overall quantity of fruit, allowing the existing clusters plenty of energy and sunlight to ripen and create a finer, more regal wine.

Tasting Notes

This 2017 Old Vine Zinfandel boasts ripe fruit and many layers of complexity due to Mendocino’s coastal climate. An aromatic bouquet of blackberry and cassis fill the glass. Flavors of red strawberries, boysenberry and vanilla open to a velvety smooth mouthfeel backed by very little tannin and a good structural acidity.
