The complexity of our Old Vine Zinfandel lies in the spicy notes that are unique to these historic properties. This vintage presents alluring aromatics of blackberry cobbler, fresh cranberries with notes of white pepper, cola and dried herbs. On the palate, brambly layers of black cherry, black raspberry and dark chocolate come forward with nuances of nutmeg, cardamom and cinnamon. The wine is complex, with bright acidity complimented by a long, lingering finish. The tannins are structured, but soft, and lend a round, rich mouthfeel.

This producer shows its heritage and skill with the variety, blending it with 19% Petite Sirah and 3% Carignan. Clove and gingerbread flavors highlight the spicy palate, which finds companionship in bright cherry and cranberry before unleashing a flurry of black pepper on the finish.

Rustic and briary, in the old-school style, with low-key raspberry, forest floor and cracked pepper flavors that finish with big-shouldered tannins. Best after 2019. 2,118 cases made.
