Girard Zinfandel 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

The vineyard sources for our 2007 Old Vine Zinfandel are: Blue Ridge and Morgan Vineyards on Mt. Vaca; Godward Vineyard in Calistoga. Mt. Vaca is the highest peak of the Vaca range, which forms the Eastern border of the Napa Valley. Many of the Zinfandel vines are over a century old. The fruit concentration from these mountain vineyards and the century-old valley floor vineyards ensure our Old Vine Zinfandel has rich flavor extraction, a fruit-forward palate and wonderful layers of complexity from multiple soil types. Our 2007 vintage Old Vine Zinfandel is a medium-bodied wine of lush, well integrated tannins and crisp, bright acidity. The aroma/flavor profile includes: Kirsch, raspberry preserves, red licorice and dark plums with subtle notes of tobacco, dried hay and cedar. The blend is 86% Zinfandel, 9% Charbono and 5% Mourvedre. Total cases produced: 3,980

The narrow, winding road up Sage Canyon leads a traveler to one of Napa Valley's best kept secrets: Pritchard Hill, where mountain wineries such as Bryant Family, Colgin and Chappellet have carved a niche into the steep slopes. It's here that you will find the vineyards from which Girard's 93-point Cabernet was born. Girard was founded 35 years ago at the dawn of New Age winemaking in California. Since its inception, Girard Winery's quest has remained unchanged: to seek out world-class vineyards and produce from them, wines that in every way possible, reflect the breathtakingly rare terroir in which the grapes were grown. On hillsides high above Napa Valley, Cabernet Sauvignon is king. And Girard winemaker Marco DiGiulio lets terroir - or the vineyard - determine his choice of varietals. It's no wonder Girard's Cabernet ripens well on the rugged terrain of Napa's mountain appellations, with views that stretch clear across the valley. At lower altitudes, richer soils are more suitable to growing white grapes such as Sauvignon Blanc and red grapes like Merlot. As a result, Girard has dedicated much of its valley floor acreage to these varietals. Additionally, the winery sources a small amount of Cabernet Franc, Zinfandel and Petite Sirah from individual growers in other parts of the valley. The Chardonnay in the winery's portfolio also comes from grapes grown in Sonoma's upscale Russian River Valley. For more than three decades, Girard has celebrated its sense of place in the California wine country. With the right grapes from the right locations, this Napa Valley winery offers a line-up that features both power and finesse - the hallmark of great California wine.
