Jc Cellars Zinfandel Sonoma Valley Iron Hill 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

Varietals: 96% Zinfandel, 4% Petite Syrah <br/>Appellation: Sonoma Valley <br/>Alcohol: 15.8% <br/><br/>Comments: Planted in 2000, Iron Hills "old vines" flavor profile belies its age. It contains a sweet, concentrated briery fruit component of cherries and raspberries. This "briery" effect is a term usually used to describe "old vine" Zinfandels of 75-100 years old, with prickly black pepper-like flecks on the tongue. This spicy finish is complimented by great depth and intensity. In a short period of time the volcanic rock soil, cooke clone, organic farming, and cropping at one ton per acre combine to give this vineyard its "old vine" effect.<br/><br/>
