The 2020 Zinfandel is comprised of 100% fruit from the Titus Ranch Estate Vineyard. This old vine Zinfandel is grown is dry farmed in the oldest block on our property. The old vines produce a concentrated and ripe Zinfandel that will age for years.
The fruit was picked on September 18th and arrived 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.
