2015 Grist Vineyard Zinfandel

Appellation
Dry Creek Valley

Tasting Notes
Dark, concentrated aromas of ripe plum, blueberry, and blackberry jam quickly lift from the glass. Classic Grist Zinfandel notes of eucalyptus, mint, and dried flowers compliment the lush fruit profile. The mouthfeel displays round berry flavors upon entry and through the mid-palate, while being balanced with generous natural acidity. Silky wood tannins integrate beautifully with the varietal character of the wine and provide an exceptionally long finish.
Vineyard Notes
Originally settled by an Italian family in the late 1800s, Grist Vineyard is now owned by Sonoma County’s Hambrecht family. This Dry Creek Valley property is on the northwestern slope of Bradford Mountain at an elevation of 1,000 feet. The volcanic, red soils — Boomer loam and Stonyford loam — are reminiscent of Tuscany’s terra rosa. We source Zinfandel fruit from 30 of the 51 total acres, which were planted in 1974. Though there is some debate, the Zinfandel vines are thought to be from the “mother” blocks planted in 1900, the Hambrecht/Mead Atlas Peak clones.
