Alexander Valley

Alcohol By Volume


Aromas of raspberry, licorice and toasty oak. Medium to full bodied palate with cherry fruit, balanced acidity and a note of mint on the finish. JO (12/20)
Early budbreak and warm summer weather advanced ripening of these seventy year-old zinfandel vines. Submerged cap fermentation enhanced extraction of color and tannin. After malolactic, we combined the zinfandel lots and included carignane from an adjoining parcel to balance acidity. Twelve months in oak lends just the right amount of toast and spice. This full-bodied zinfandel will continue to develop beautifully over the next five to six years.
