The 2018 is the inaugural vintage using 100% fruit from the Bald Mountain Vineyard. This old vine Zinfandel is grown in the mountain vineyard off of Wall Rd and is one of the most stunning vineyards in Napa Valley. The old vines produce a concentrated and ripe Zinfandel that will age for years.
The fruit arrives at the winery early in the morning before being destemmed to tank. The wine is the macerated for 14 days until the completion of alcoholic fermentation. After draining we rack the wine to 30% new American Oak barrels where is ages for one year before being bottled in August.
