Medusa Old Vine Zinfandel Henry's House Vineyard Amador 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Henry Modani built a house within this vineyard block in 1920 hence the name Henry's House. This north facing site has great elevation and a microclimate that is warmer than the rest of the ranch. The uppermost section is actually a banana belt. Younger vines are interplanted amongst the old ones due to phyloxxera. This combination lends bright fruit and lively acidity to the wine making it vibrant and youthful.Harvest Date: September 29 2005 Varietal Blend: Zinfandel Oak Aging: 100% French Oak for 8 Months Cases Produced: 320 Release Date: September 1 2007

Gnarled, twisted old Zinfandel vines were the inspiration behind the Medusa wines logo, named for the snake-haired figure of Greek mythology. Winemaker, Rob Mondavi Jr., and his partners, wife Lydia Mondavi, Patti McKiernan and Geoff Whitman, are committed to crafting single-vineyard, old-vine Zinfandel from some of California’s best appellations. The current releases hail from four different prime growing regions: Pig Pen Vineyard from the Deaver Ranch in Amador County; Lover's Lane Vineyard in Mendocino; Hoodoo Creek Vineyard in Lake County; and the Creekside Block of Bar 49 Vineyard in Chiles Valley in northeast Napa Valley. Each of these sites contributes distinctive and intensely concentrated character for these truly terroir-driven Zinfandel expressions. Read less
