This Zinfandel is crafted entirely from old vines—some more than 120 years old—on our Monte Rosso Vineyard. Though yields are small, the old gnarly vines produce exceptional fruit with deep, concentrated flavors. The vintage was another in a string of warm, dry and early growing seasons with quality rivaling the best we’ve seen in previous years. Mild weather without heat spikes or cool stretches lasted through the spring and summer, allowing slow, even ripening that built excellent ripeness and complexity. A mild, dry harvest gave us small berries with intense aromatics, concentrated ripe fruit flavors and outstanding structure and balance.
