Martinelli "Jackass" Zinfandel Russian River 2010
Jackass Vineyard was planted in the late 1800’s in the splendid Russian River Valley. This eight acre vineyard thrives on a steep rolling hillside which surrounds the west side of the Jackass Hill Vineyard. The old head pruned vines are farmed much the same way as they were a century ago; without the use of trellising, irrigation, or pesticides. The vines produce a large crop load for being 100 years old, about three tons per acre, and the fruit is thinned to insure more concentrated flavor in the berries.Tasting NotesThe 2010 Jackass Vineyard Zinfandel has aromas of cherry pit, strawberries and flinty characteristics. Flavors include blackberry, anise, and clove spice with roasted figs.
Since 1896, five generations of the Martinelli family have worked together producing apples and wine in Sonoma County. We invite you to stop by the Martinelli Vineyards Tasting room in our historic Hop Barn to try our award winning estate wines.
