Rutherford Grove Zinfandel Lake County Quackenbush Mountain Vineyards 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Quackenbush Mountain Vineyards sit at an altitude of 2,000 feet on a rocky slope overlooking the eastern shore of Clear Lake. With its ideal red clay and fractured basalt, this location benefits from the cool lake breezes. This slows the ripening process, allowing the fruit to reach the balance and intensity we look for in a mountain wine. Our vines, all heirloom selections of Zinfandel and Petite Sirah, are planted with budwood gathered from some of the oldest existing plantings in California. Our grandfather and great uncles made their robust wines with these types of grapes under similar conditions...one of the blocks even originates from Uncle Fred's old ranch.

Pleasantly surprised! Fruit forward, extremely smooth zin. Great Balance. Bought this at Raley's in Petaluma for $7.99, in a 50% off bin at the back, wish I'd bought them all!
