A briar patch of a wine, with zesty wild berry, underbrush and licorice flavors that finish with medium-grained tannins. Drink now through 2030. 4,000 cases made.
The 2020 Zinfandel Old Vine is a forward, boisterous wine that will drink well right out of the gate. In this vintage, the Old Vine is especially perfumed, a reflection of the sites used in this year’s blend. Crushed flowers, sweet red berry, spice, licorice and tobacco are nicely pushed forward. The Old Vine is built on a core from Bedrock, plus dollops from Esola, Schmiedt Road and Nervo Ranch. It’s about 85% Zinfandel and 15% mixed blacks. Drink it over the next handful of years.
