The Wine

This full-bodied, aromatic Zinfandel is lavished with aromas of enticing plums, warm sandalwood and white pepper. The wine’s concentrated flavors and smooth tannins make it the perfect partner for savory duck and grilled meats.

Vintage

We enjoyed a wonderful vintage from start to finish in 2014. A gentle spring allowed for textbook flowering and fruit set, followed by a long procession of beautiful warm, sunny days with no heat spikes. The fruit excelled in this vintage due to small, concentrated grape clusters on the vines. Thanks to the excellent weather, the longer than-average growing season produced wonderfully balanced and ripe grapes.

Vineyard

Miljenko “Mike” Grgich’s home overlooks our small vineyard in Calistoga where the few rows of ancient Zinfandel vines that produce this wine were planted more than 100 years ago on St. George rootstock. Its northeast exposure catches plenty of morning light but is shaded from the hot, late afternoon sun while the vineyard’s gravelly loam soil allows the extensive roots to reach deep. We farm all our vineyards naturally, without artificial pesticides or herbicides and they are certified organic.
