Medusa Old Vine Zinfandel Pig Pen Vineyard Amador 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Gentle rolling slopes and vibrant red Shenandoah soil accentuate this vineyard's unique rich berry character. Pig Pen was planted in 1978 and named for the fencing that surrounds the vineyard protecting the luscious berries from wild boar. At harvest the color was instantly magenta while dark fruit aromatics literally filled the winery. The wine offers a rose petal bouquet with rich textures complimented by flavors of sarsaparilla of Rainer cherry.Harvest Date: September 21 2004 Varietal Blend: Zinfandel Oak Aging: 100% French Oak for 8 Months Cases Produced: 345 Release Date August 1 2006

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
