Winemaker Notes - The growing season of 2008 provided excellent weather and a lighter crop than usual. By late September the Zinfandel located at the highest 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 French and American oak barrels for 19 months. The wild berry and spice flavors of this rich and elegant Zinfandel are a perfect complement to tomato sauce dishes, grilled fish and steak, and rich chocolate desserts.

A beautiful Zinfandel, lusty and smooth, that takes the varietyrsquo;s rustic, wild berry, tobacco, anise, herb and pepper flavors and makes them as elegant as Zinfandel gets. Strong, grippy tannins call for a salty, peppery flank steak.

A solid Zinfandel to toss back with ribs, chicken, pork chops or a grilled steak. Itrsquo;s dry, full-bodied and tannic, with peppery flavors of blackberries and currants.


Winemaker's Notes:

Our first Zinfandel was bottled from the Jack London Vineyard in 1988. This vineyard is long recognized for its superior red wines. 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 excellent, very distinctive Zinfandel. The growing season of 2008 provided excellent weather and a lighter crop than usual. By late September the Zinfandel located at the highest 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 French and American oak barrels for 19 months.
