Bucklin Zinfandel Sonoma County Old Hill Ranch 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

The color of our signature Old Hill Zin is dark purple and the aromas are wonderfully complex. Old Hill Zin is known for its herbal complexity and the 2006 is no exception. This spice character tends towards lavender, eucalyptus and cardamom while the fruit component has an impressive array of cherries, blackberries, and ripe plums. The French oak contributes toast and vanilla aromas while the tannins are very ripe and smooth on the finish. Follow the evolution of this wine in your glass as it opens up or decant if you are in a hurry. The wine will reach its peak maturity in 7-10 years. The vineyard is a mosaic of over two dozen grape varieties — principally Zinfandel, but also Grenache, Alicante Bouchet, Petite Sirah, Mourvedre, Syrah, Carignane, and Tempranillo, to name a few. All are blended together in this wine.

We do not have a tasting room but we love to show off our vineyard and wines when time allows. Read less
