Spicy aromas of mint, nutmeg, thyme and ripe plums. Medium bodied with fig preserves, black olive, elegant tannins and well balanced acidity.
This is the companion wine to the carignane from the same old-vine vineyard. The zinfandel is planted primarily in the center, side by side with the carignane. The vines are over seventy-five years old, head pruned, and very low-yielding. Cool spring weather delayed bud break; moderate temperatures extended the ripening season. We picked from September 16 to 21. As in years past, we blended in some old-vine carignane to soften tannins and accentuate fruit. After a natural-yeast fermentation, the wine aged for twelve months in air-dried american oak. Delicious now, it will be at its best over the next four to five years.
