Winemaker Notes

Ripe red fruit such as prunes, plums and dried cherries dominate the nose with an undertone of licorice in the background. This medium bodied wine exhibits excellent mid-palate with soft to firm tannins, contributing to a long-lasting finish that is uplifted by a good amount of acidity.

Vineyard Notes

Zinfandel is a grape genetically identical to the grape called Primitivo from Puglia, Southern Italy. Our Zinfandel was grown at Chiarito Vineyard, owned and farmed by John Chiarito. John is a second generation Italian-American who planted his vineyard just east of Ukiah, approximately 12 miles north of Hopland. This vineyard is head-pruned, dry-farmed, and cultivated in a very unique and old style method of farming that consists of plowing and cross cultivating - alowing the grapes to maximize the full expression from the soil. The warm days and cool nights of inland Mendocino County are ideal for growing Zinfandel.
