Wine Profile
Harvest Notes
The 2013 harvest season followed the same pattern of excellent quality as the 2012 vintage. Winter brought with itself a vast amount of rain, followed by one of the driest springs and summers in a long time. Harvest commenced about two weeks earlier than average allowing for all grapes to be picked before the arrival of rain. In summary, 2013 was another amazing vintage, providing all elements to make outstanding wines with mature tannins and flavors and aromas that truly show a sense of place.
Vineyard Notes
Zinfandel is a grape genetically identical to the grape called Primitivo from Puglia, Southern Italy. Our 2013 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, twelve miles north of Hopland. This vineyard is head-pruned, dry-farmed and cultivated in a very unique and old style method of farming consisting of plowing and cross cultivating, allowing 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.
Production Notes
Fermentation: De-stemmed and crushed to a stainless steel tank and cold soaked for 5 days at 50F to extract color and desirable phenolic compounds. Fermented to dryness at 85F. Only free-run fraction transferred to barrel where it underwent native malo-lactic fermentation.
