The Wine

This 2018 Miljenko’s Old Vine Zinfandel is the perfect wine to indulge yourself and someone special. A tour de force of rich flavors and ripe tannins, this wine leaves you wanting more. Aromas of summer picked plums and wild blueberries pairs with intoxicating undertones of cocoa and orange zest. On the palate, an introduction of cassis
and strawberries marries with a hint of white pepper and spicy bay leaf to elevate your
senses. Lavishly fruity and perfectly balanced with silky-smooth tannins, this wine has a soft yet dense mid-palate that tantalizingly carries through to the long and satisfying finish.

Vintage

The 2018 vintage was a bountiful vintage that was marked by cool, consistent temperatures and a timely rainfall for bud break in March and April. Harvest began on September tenth, and the grapes were of the highest quality with a lower alcohol and high acidity.

Vineyard

Miljenko “Mike” Grgich’s home in Calistoga overlooks our small vineyard 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, using the
principles of regenerative agriculture, and they are certified organic.
