2018 Old Vine Zinfandel
Our commitment to Zinfandel is within the confines of this bottle and is a tribute to the Italian families who first planted this venerable grape in Russian River Valley. Classic cotton candy, bubble gum and raspberry aromas. Fat but with finesse, simply captured, not made. From vines planted in 1910

TASTING NOTES

Once again a superstar Zinfandel. Hugely ripe and fat, with raspberry liqueur like fruit, tempered with just the right amount of toasted new American oak. Not merely a wine that is to taste, but a wine that is truly an “Experience” unto itself.
Screaming for “fall-off-the-bone” slow smoked baby back ribs. Perfect to go or age to 2028.


VINEYARD NOTES

Dolinsek Ranch, a magical vineyard planted over 110 years ago by the Frati family, has produced outstanding wines throughout this century.
The soil is a rich sandy-Gold Ridge loam and is located just off the famous Laguna Road in Russian River Valley. Jim Dolinsek, owner and grower, had the chance to purchase the property 19 years ago and since then,
has meticulously cared for each and every vine with a passion.


WINEMAKER NOTES

Our purest vintage ever-great balance and concentration, capturing the essence of the ancient vines and Goldridge soil. Aged for 16 months in American oak.
