53% Zinfandel 37% Barbera 10%
Inspired by the unique foothill grown red blends crafted by Montevina in the mid 1970’s, we experimented for two vintages before bottling our own interpretation, using El Dorado fruit for a new millennium update.
After a few days of cold maceration, the lots were inoculated. Then post fermentation and pressing, filled to barrels so a malo-lactic conversion took place wood.
In late Feb, select French oak barrels (including 36% new, plus 36% once used) were racked and blended, with the aging continuing for another six months.
Bottled in August 2016;
14.3% alcohol, pH 3.69 & TA 5.8 g/l
"Elegant and intriguing; spicy and toasty oak aromas, mingling with the aromas and flavors of black cherry and blackberry, plus a hint of vanilla; with a focused attack; very complete and nuanced, having a long finish."
