2015 was another prime vintage with moderate temperatures throughout the
spring and summer. Zinfandel is notorious for being uneven in the vineyard,
with green pips, ripe berries and raisins on the same bunch. This vineyard
produces absolutely beautiful fruit with virtually no green or raisined grapes.
This is the fourth vintage of our Russian River Valley Zinfandel, made
exclusively for our wine club and tasting room. The grapes come from our
Trenton Road vineyard, in the heart of the Russian River Valley. Primarily
planted with Pinot Noir, there is one small block on a west-facing hillside
that is tailor-made for Zinfandel, the Lions Ridge West Block.
