Zinfandel

Zinfandel
Dry Creek Valley
Proprietor's Reserve
Estate Grown & Bottled


Our Zinfandels are classic Dry Creek and produced from 100 year old  head pruned vines from our historic pre-prohibition  vineyard located on the elevated east benchland of  Dry Creek Valley. These magnificent non-irrigated vines are a living testament to the unique combination of this old clone with  the deep rooted St. George rootstock.  Low yields enable maximum ripeness in the fruit which produce a full bodied dry wine with intense mixed briary berry flavors, deep ruby red color,  fragrant spice and bold alcohol.  Co-fermented with small amounts of Carignane and Cabernet for structure and a supple balanced finish without heat.  Aged 20 months in 40% new MN American oak barrels.  A great wine to pair with braised meats with rich sauces, lamb or fancy Italian entrees.
