Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
Our Zingaro is made from a blend of Zinfandel fruit sourced from the cool-climate Russian River Valley AVA in northern Sonoma County, along with a touch of our own Primitivo grown in front of the Castello. The cool climate of Russian River Valley allows for slow ripening of the fruit, resulting in full flavor development and increased complexity, while the old vines produce fewer, more concentrated clusters, which add an extra layer of depth and complexity to the finished wine.
Winemaker Notes
Following the very small 2015 harvest, it was heartening to see the vines recover and bounce back to produce not only extremely high quality fruit but also some bounty in 2016! Harvest was earlier than we expected, and we observed optimum flavor and phenolic development progress as we harvested. Across the board, the flavors and acids were exceptional, and a delicious balance evolved as the harvest proceeded. Acids are firm and pH is slightly lower, so the wines should be well-structured with very good aging potential. This is an exciting vintage with a lot to like! —Brooks Painter, Director of Winemaking
