Neal Family Vineyards Zinfandel Rutherford 2002

Winemaker's Notes:

December 7, 2004 - This is our first bottling of Zinfandel at Neal Family Vineyards. The fruit comes from Mark Neal’s home ranch in the heart of Rutherford, one of Napa Valley’s premium grape growing districts. Ripe black fruit aromas are mixed with delightful spices and vanilla from aging in oak barrels. Luscious black cherry and brambly-berry fruit mixed with touches of pepper and spice contribute to an extensive array of flavors. This is a rich, structured Zinfandel with an abundance of soft tannins and a finish that increases in intensity. Harvest Information

Mark Neal worked for his father's business since its inception and in 1994, shortly after Jack's passing, he assumed the position of President and Owner of Jack Neal & Son (JNS), Inc. JNS started implementing organic farming practices in 1984 and, today, the company farms over 85% of the vineyards under its management - most of which are planted on the hillsides of Napa Valley - organically. For four decades, it has been the Neal Family's mission to grow the highest quality wine grapes, which produce the ultra-premium wines world renowned to the Napa Valley.
