Tasting Notes
Opulent and rich, the 2018 Grist Vineyard Zinfandel offers an abundance of wild blackberries, raspberries, and boysenberries. Hints of white pepper, anise, and cloves add layers of savory intrigue. The palate is at once tangy and full bodied, with the ample fruit profile delivering the bounty of the last days of summer.
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.
