Wine Profile
Production Notes
2014 was a very even and long growing season which allowed the slow and steady maturation of our ancient vines. The warm days and cool breezes streaming through the hillsides kept the mildew pressures low giving these old timers ample opportunity to display what they are capable of. Our winemaking started off with a three-day cold soak, making sure to turn the tank over slowly in order to massage the color out of the skins. Temperatures were maintained in the low 80’s during the fermentation to keep the fruit flavor on the palate, but also to extract some texture from the skins and seeds. The press decision is a textural choice and the mixed use of French (30% new) and American oak cooperage adds to the complexity and flavor. The wine was aged for 20 months in barrel and bottled in June 2016.
Winemaker Notes
“Working with vines as old as these is always such a treat! The grapes must be handled with the utmost delicacy, but boy will they give you some great juice back. There are so few vines which have the pedigree and steadfastness capable to be still be producing such a beautiful product as our Century Vines Zinfandel. I smile when I image what it must have been like to plant these vines, never even guessing that today we would still be enjoying those decisions made so long ago. Savor this Sonoma Valley gem!”
