Our old vineyard dates back to 1890. People describe old vineyards like ours as “Italian field blends”, but many of them pre-date the Italians, and they seldom include any Italian varieties. Our vineyard was planted by a family named Brumfield that came from Virginia in 1857. In vineyard censuses done in the 1880s, the Brumfields reported they were growing Zinfandel and Mission. When we bought the vineyard, there were still a couple of Mission vines near the old house, which is no longer part of our property. Of course, “Zinfandel” meant Zinfandel plus other complementary varieties. The Sangiovese in our vineyard was added 60 years ago, in 1950, by A. Raffanelli, who owned the vineyard at that time. The Heritage Vines Zinfandel blocks are a mixed planting that is 78% Zinfandel, 10% Petite Sirah, & 10% Alicante Bouschet. The remaining 2% includes Carignane, Trousseau, Sangiovese, Petit Bouschet, Negrette, Syrah, Plavic Mali, Tannat, Muscat Noir, Peloursin, Beclan, Mataro, Cinsaut, Grenache, and Read more »

  • Carinena Alegria Old Vines 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Thin ripe cherry nose. Acidy, round, silky taste of ripe berries at the beginning and some tannic spicy wooden notes come at the end with hints of nuts may be.Good wine for me. Read More

  • Acorn Zinfandel Heritage Vines Alegría Vineyards Russian River Valley 2008

    Snoothrank:

    Very perfumed with lots of hints of vanilla, caramel, wood, and cacao. On the palate, green peppercorn, lots of ripe berries, cherry and black plums, with a soft hint of vanilla, and a bit of caramel. It was delicious to drink by it self, probably even better with some cheeses or meaty foods. I would definitely look for this wine. Read More

  • Acorn Zinfandel Heritage Vines Alegría Vineyards Russian River Valley 2008

    Snoothrank:

    This is rather light and precise on the nose with frutti del bosco accented by some cigar box oak and vanilla tones. The oak is quite perfumed and helps lift some of the floral aspects of the nose, but also does add a bit of char here. A little compact in the mouth, this is tight and a bit rough around the edges with fairly aggressive tannins. T... Read More

  • Acorn Zinfandel Heritage Vines Alegría Vineyards Russian River Valley 2008

    Snoothrank:

    Brighter, riper fruit than other Sangiovese selections. This fruit is red and is mixed with a bit of funk and cheesiness! Light on the palette and a nice finish. Read More
