Fruit for our 2008 Wild Oak Zinfandel comes from our top growers in Sonoma County. More than half of the Zinfandel is from Pagani Vineyard’s 130-year-old vines in Sonoma Valley. Nurtured by several generations of the Pagani family, this vineyard is stingy in its old age, producing fewer bunches and berries than its younger counterparts. The smaller crop produces highly concentrated and intense fruit, resulting in rich, layered wines. We also added Zinfandel grapes from Russian River Valley and Dry Creek Valley, as well as from the highly regarded Montecillo Vineyard in Sonoma Valley. This hillside vineyard benefits from ideal growing conditions, including cool nights and warm, sunny afternoons. All grapes are hand-picked, hand-sorted and undergo a five-day cold soak to extract optimal color and flavor. The selected lots are fermented separately in stainless steel tanks. The wine is pumped into French and American oak barrels, where it undergoes 100% malolactic fermentation, followed by 15 months of aging.
This classic Zinfandel has a rich, layered style combining aromas of ripe black plum, sweet tobacco, dark chocolate and lavender. Flavors of blackberry jam with a hint of nutmeg are followed by a long, lingering finish.
Aged 15 months.
Notes: 78% American Oak, 22% French Oak
