Wine Tasting NotesThe Old Vine Zinfandel is the best blend from our finest Sonoma sites. This vintage gives us aromas of blackberry and raspberry mixed with a hint of clove and spice. Balanced and elegant, a wonderful harmony of dark fruit coats the palate with flavors of dark berry, ripe cherry and plum. The jammy berry flavors expand across the palate with a hint of earthiness and spice and a long, distinctive finish.

Intense and zesty, with wild berry and sage aromas and chunky blueberry, licorice, pepper and roasted herb flavors that finish with burly tannins. Best from 2009 through 2012. 2,855 cases made. -TF

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Enthusiast Review Rated 90 The wine is close in quality to Dry Creek's spectacular single-vineyard '05 Zins, without quite the same power. Dry and softly tannic, it features flavors of blackberries, cherries, chocolate, cola and spice. Wine Tasting Notes The Old Vine Zinfandel is the best blend from our finest Sonoma sites.
