Vineyard's red volcanic soil combines with the fruity characteristics of the grapes to produce an excellent, very distinctive Zinfandel. The flavors from these vineyards exude aromas of cherry and fig combined with spicy notes of vanilla and pepper. Delic

Zesty and a touch rustic, with fresh cherry and earthy spice aromas, featuring flavors that pack lots of spice, mineral and dusty herb. Best from 2014 through 2018.

The spice of a redwood forest infuses this smooth, balanced zin. After it’s been open for a day, the wine develops into a blast of flavor, building on blueberry fruit with complex depths of tannins. Open and inviting. Decant it for grilled lamb chops

Smooth and spicy, this has lots of raspberry, cherry and smoky wood flavors that taste sweet and savory, but turn nicely dry and complex on the finish. It shows real class. Best over the next few years.


Winemaker's Notes:

This vineyard is long recognized for its prized red wines and its Zinfandel is no exception. Since our first vintage in 1987 the Jack London Zinfandel has produced flavorful wines with excellent fruit and well-rounded tannins. Located on Sonoma Mountain with a southeasterly exposure, the climatic conditions and long, cool growing season of this viticultural area create complexity and balance in the fruit. The influence of the vineyard’s red volcanic soil and the fruity characteristics of the grapes combine to produce an outstanding, very distinctive Zinfandel. The 2010 vintage at the Jack London Ranch was characterized by a light crop but outstanding flavor and body. In mid September the Zinfandel located at the highest and warmest part of the vineyard was ready and we began picking. Over the course of the following three weeks as the fruit slowly ripened, we picked our way down to the lowest part of the vineyard. The grapes were fermented in stainless steel, and then aged in 60% French and 40% American oak barrels for just over a year and a half.

Tasting Notes:

Bold fruity aromas of raspberry and fig combine with spicy notes of vanillin and white pepper. Delicate well-structured tannins provide a rich mouth feel and an excellent finish.
