The Vineyard: Our Zinfandel vines are grown in thin, red mountaintop soils and produce grapes of exceptionally concentrated flavors.

Vintage: Moderate temperatures with no appreciable rainfall throughout the ripening season allowed the grapes to fully develop exceptionally concentrated flavors.

Harvest: Sept 26th to Oct 8th, 2013 Average brix: 26.9 pH: 3.60 TA: 0.65 g/100ml

Fermentation: The grapes were crushed into small open top fermenters, “cold-soaked” for three days to extract rich color, then fermented on the skins for two weeks. After fermentation, the wine was gently pressed out, settled, and racked into barrels.

Cooperage / Aging: The wine was aged for 14 months in French oak barrels (20% new).
