The grapes we choose for our Napa Valley Zinfandel are a mix of those off our estate vineyards and grapes from other select Napa Valley high quality, low-yielding vineyards. Dry-farmed for over 23 years, our 4.5 acre estate block consists of mature thirty-eight year old vines which typically give us around 2.5 tons/acre of beautiful hillside Zinfandel fruit. Interspersed among the head-trained vines are a handful of Petite Sirah vines representing perhaps 5% of the total vines in this block. A traditional field companion to Zinfandel in pre-prohibition California vineyards, Petite Sirah contributes pepper, color, and tannin structure to the wine.

Wine EnthusiastFrom dry-farmed older vines, a field blend containing Petite Sirah, this affordable wine conjures memories of cherry-berry pie topped in vanilla, along with aromas of baked bread. A soft, grippy finish is seasoned in black pepper.

Wine AdvocateThe 2013 Zinfandel (100% Zinfandel) shows peppery, spicy, brambleberry notes, medium body and a nice, fresh, earthy finish. It should be drunk over the next several years.
