Tasting Notes
Abounding with an array of black currants, fig jam, and ripe plums, this brambly Zinfandel is a delight to the senses. Cinnamon and sweet tobacco are woven together with an undelaying essence of white pepper and wood spice. Silky, well-balanced tannins support the mid-palate, while a refreshing lift of bright acidity completes the package.
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.
