To preserve the tradition and “heritage” of old Zinfandel vineyards, cuttings from a pre-Prohibition era vineyard were grafted onto phylloxera-resistant rootstock. Then, for several years we worked diligently to screen and propagate virus-free vines that would ultimately produce a crop. The 2021 Heritage Vines Zinfandel is delicious and wonderfully balanced. This vintage presents alluring aromatics of black cherry, boysenberry and plum with nuances of warm spices, mocha and white pepper. On the palate, brambly flavors of dark berries come forward. The wine is complex, with bright acidity complimented by deeper notes of cedar, fine leather and dark brown sugar. From start to finish, this remarkable wine offers refreshing acidity paired with excellent structure.

A briar patch in a bottle, this hearty red abounds with bold raspberry, roasted anise and smoky black pepper flavors that build tension and structure toward broad-shouldered tannins. Drink now through 2031. 19,892 cases made.

Composed of 80% Zinfandel, 19% Petite Sirah, and the rest Carignan and pouring a dark red hue, the 2021 Zinfandel Heritage Vines is ripe with lush berries, mocha, and spice. Black-fruited, with ripe fig and a note of tea leaf, as well as sweet tannins and a supple texture, this opulent red has a youthful charm and would be outstanding alongside BBQ.
