Robert Parker rated our 2007 Old Vine Zinfandel one of "Fifty Super Domestic Value Wines"
The vineyard sources for our 2007 Old Vine Zinfandel are: Blue Ridge and Morgan Vineyards on Mt. Vaca; Godward Vineyard in Calistoga. Mt. Vaca is the highest peak of the Vaca range, which forms the Eastern border of the Napa
Valley. Many of the Zinfandel vines are over a century old. The fruit concentration from these mountain vineyards and the century-old valley floor vineyards ensure our Old Vine Zinfandel has rich flavor extraction, a fruit-forward
palate and wonderful layers of complexity from multiple soil types.
Our 2007 vintage Old Vine Zinfandel is a medium-bodied wine of lush, well integrated 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. Total cases produced: 3,980 less
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 80% French and 20% American oak with a
composition of 35% new oak for both barrel types.
