We are at the eastern extremity of the Russian River AVA, and close to the eastern end of the Dry Creek Valley AVA. This is an area of rolling hills with Southwest exposure. The soils are of volcanic origin, mainly a clay loam with a great deal of volcanic rock and shale. The soil depth varies greatly and along with the low vigor of the site this limits production. We are fairly high up the hill and whilst we are not frost free we seem to have averted major frost damage in recent years. The vines are head pruned (small bushes, no trellis wire). The vineyard is dry-farmed (no irrigation), relying on winter and spring rains to water the vines. Normally the vines are pruned in January and February and the cover crop of Fava beans, clover, vetch, chamomile and mustard is ploughed into the ground in March. Each vine is pruned so the major arms form the shape of a wineglass about 3-4 feet high. From this basis the canes form a leafy canopy with approximately two bunches of grapes per cane. In summer time as the grape bunches mature, the vineyard workers pull leaves to expose the fruit. This gives better sunlight exposure to the bunches and also allows airflow through the bush, reducing the threat of molds and mildews and heat stress in the center of the plant. Normal crop levels are between 2.5-3 tons per acre. At this harvest level and with the exceptional terroir winemaking in the winery is easy. No pesticides or fungicides are used in our vineyard.

2009 Vintage Strawberry and Plum and other berries aroma. On the palate it is jammy with fruits and berries everywhere. The tannins kick in but are not too intense. A nice finish and no sign of the 14.6% alcohol.A nicely structured Zin.

Really enjoyed this wine. Nice amount of spice yet fruit flavors still come through.
