This ancient vineyard is non-irrigated, stand alone, head pruned vines that fully express the Amador Zinfandel terroir. Briary varietal Zinfandel. Deep blackberry, fig, pomegranate and violets, balanced with a fleshy center and hints of coffee and bright currants. Old Vine complexity and first growth quality.
