2012 Old Vine Zinfandel

Tasting Notes

This wine contains notes of blackberry, strawberry, and sweet tobacco with well-balanced tannins that result in a smooth rounded pallet.

Winemaker Notes

These vines are head pruned on well-drained soil that is dry farmed producing very intense flavors in the fruit. The vineyard is located in the northern Dry Creek Valley. What makes this 2012 vintage unique is the fact that 2012 produced bigger berries than usual, resulting in a lighter body, but still the high concentration of aromatics.
