Winemaker’s note: “This is California heritage. I fell in love with mixed vineyards because they are relics from the past, and they represent what the first settlers were planting to drink. From a tiny family vineyard just about 100 years old. This is a finite resource and it’s a privilege to be the only vintner to make wine from grapes grown there. This unique vineyard creates a wine with a singular personality that can’t be replicated.”

Grapes: fieldblend of Zinfandel, Mourvedre, Carignan, Alicante Bouschet, Petite Sirah, Black Muscat

Vineyard notes: Locarnini, Santa Clara Valley. Planted ~1920. Alluvial loams. 5th generation Italian-owned by a family that farms how they learned from the previous generation. It used to be about 18 acres until the 101 was built, now only 0.6 acres remain. Organic with one watering per year. 

Making of: This season the fruit was picked a little riper and destemmed. (Previous vintages were carbonic ferments.) Native fermentation lasted about 2 weeks before being pressed off at dryness. Left ‘sur lie’ in neutral French oak for ~10 months. Racked once before bottling. Unfined, unfiltered, and no added sulfites.

Personality: Red cherry, cola, and menthol are the dominant notes. This vintage is opulent and produced rich wine.
