Winery notes In this 2007 vintage we marry vibrant fruit from century old vines and old vine clones. Grown in the heart of the Russian River Valley the grapes reveal unique flavor profiles famous to this region. Vinified in our traditional style vineyard lots were fermented separately to highlight these distinctive characteristics. After barrel ageing and careful selection the wines are united in a single cuvee exemplifying the pinnacle of Russian River Valley Zinfandel.
Established in the 1960s from pre-prohibition site-original vine cuttings, the Nova Vineyard is on the benchland of Mount Konocti in Lake County at an altitude of 1500’. The head-trained vines grow in well-drained, deep alluvial soils and have been organically farmed since planting. The crop receives just one watering during the growing season, and is thinned to approximately four tons per acre. These practices encourage the vines to develop smaller berries with complex, more concentrated flavors. Two lots were fermented separately with a blend of yeast strains isolated from the Rhône Valley in France, Italy and South Africa, which contribute to the dynamic aromatic profile. This wine weaves luscious notes of blackberry pie, cedar and delicate spice. The ripe dark cherry fruit and bramble berries on the palate lend richness, which is balanced by a touch of anise and cola that brings finesse to the tannins for a smooth finish.
