Russian River Valley

Alcohol By Volume


Focused raspberry and floral notes on the nose; soft and supple mouthfeel with balanced acidity and an elegant finish. JO (6/20)
2018 provided ideal growing conditions at the Ponzo vineyard. Cooler conditions typical of the Russian River Valley appellation tempered July heat spikes. A smaller crop in the Old Vine block concentrated flavor and structure. Firm acidity from the younger vines in the Back block focuses fruit and softens the mouthfeel. This elegant, approachable zinfandel will be enjoyable over the next five-to-six years.
