Winemaker's Notes:

Planted on Limerick Lane in the far northeastern reaches of the Russian River Valley, just south of the town of Healdsburg, our 10-acre Ricci Vineyard delivers fruit of great individuality. Most impressive about the Ricci Vineyard fruit is its ability to reach great ripeness and concentration of flavors without taking on the prunny or sur-maturite qualities so often found in the riper Sonoma Zinfandels. The vineyard was planted in six different blocks between 1950 and 1962. All that is known of the clonal selection is that cuttings were taken from nearby old vine vineyards. The vines do their work in Benchland Loam soils and are head-prunned. During the growing season the vines are treated to treatments including shoot thinning, leaf thinning, a round of green harvesting and removal of the entire second crop. Bottom line: unctuous, deep, ripe port from one of the best Zin vineyards in Russian River Valley.
