Winemaker's Notes:

Grape Varietal: 77% Zinfandel and 23% Petite Sirah

Just like great wine, Zinfandel vines only get better with age. For this Old Vine Zinfandel, we chose vineyards in San Joaquin County where warm days are punctuated by cool nights. The grapes stay dry, just what Zinfandel likes, but the roots have pushed deep to find water and nutrients so that the fruit is both juicy and concentrated. Cool nights mean longer hang time which in turn means more complexity. You'll discover aromas and flavors of dried currants, spice, plum, and wild berry in this wine, along with self-assured, muscular tannins and balanced acidity. Unbelievable with lasagna, grilled pepper steak, or stew.
