Ferrari-Carano Vineyards & Winery Zinfandel Dry Creek Valley 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

"Deep purple in color with rich layers of fruit complexity, Ferrari-Carano’s Zinfandel comes from our Estate Vineyard in Dry Creek Valley. Fresh, hand-picked blackberries, boysenberries and raspberries aromas with nuances of cracked peppercorn, cedar and clove that open slowly. A thick, rich mouthfeel bursting with wild berry preserves and black cherry syrup delight and contrast with delicate tannins and notes of mocha, vanilla bean and toffee on the finish." -Winery

Ferrari-Carano vineyard practices are customized to match the particular characteristics of each vineyard to help the vines produce the best fruit possible, and to in turn, achieve the best wine possible. Directed by Don Carano and orchestrated under the supervision of Steve Domenichelli, Director of Vineyard Operations, these practices are extremely labor intensive. Steve and his team implement irrigation and nutrient regimes, trellis system and canopy management, rootstock and clone combinations, and pruning and cane selection for each vineyard site and each block within a vineyard. Because of Sonoma County's diverse geological makeup, even within one vineyard parcel there may be several different types of soil with different degrees of nutrients for vines and water-holding capacity. In addition, Steve and his team practice sustainable farming techniques, such as recycling organic matter for use as mulch in the vineyards, planting cover crops and other plant species to avoid soil erosion, add desirable nutrients back to the soil and to attract desirable insects, and integrating animals to naturally enhance biodiversity and nutrient recycling.
