Aromas of deep raspberry framboise liqueur, vanilla and white pepper dominate the nose. On the palate, medium to soft tannins fill the mouth with a solid finish of intermingled fruit and allspice all supported by the underpinnings of solid acidity and Gold Ridge Soil minerality. A Zin lovers dream come true.

TASTING NOTES

Aromas of deep raspberry framboise liqueur, vanilla and white pepper dominate the nose. On the palate, medium to soft tannins fill the mouth with a solid finish of intermingled fruit and allspice all supported by the underpinnings of solid acidity and Gold Ridge Soil minerality. A Zin lovers dream come true. Excellent aging up to 2024.

To showcase the wine, a label that expresses the spirit of Cal Ital was developed and for collectors,
a magnificent black lacquer 3 bottle box.


VINEYARD NOTES

The inspiration for this very limited production wine came from the love of a few vines that winemaker Tim Borges has,
grown to love throughout the years of making wine from this vineyard. Dolinsek Ranch, a magical vineyard planted in 1910 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.


WINEMAKER NOTES

Hand crafted with pedigree winemaking practises, made for an Old World style expression of Old Vine Zinfandel. An exclusive barrel regime included aging 18 months in 50% new French Oak and 50% 1 year old American Oak barrels. This wine is an homage to the Greatness of Old Vine Zinfandel.
