Vineyard Notes
Produced 89% from the Harvey Vineyard, America’s oldest Zinfandel Vineyard documented as existing in 1869. “Vineyard 1869” was planted in the days when horses were used for cultivation. This ancient vineyard is non-irrigated, stand alone head pruned vines that fully express the Amador Zinfandel terror.
Winemaker Notes
Produced in the “Old World” style of balanced wine making. We want the wine to express the Amador Zinfandel terroir with a good balance of fruit, French oak, structural tannins and medium alcohol. The wine is made in the California Claret style reminiscent of the balanced Zinfandels produced back in the 60’s and 70’s.
