Tasting Notes

Winemaker's notes: "Own rooted, ninety-three year-old vine Zinfandel from a cool spot up against the Santa Cruz Mountains. Planted by a bootlegger in 1922, and farmed continuously from father to son by the Besson family for the past ninety years. Native ferment, neutral barrel, unfiltered."

    A unique take on Zinfandel. The 96-year-old vines are planted in a cool environment in the Santa Cruz Mountains. The marine influence, along with stainless steel fermentation and neutral oak aging, keeps the alcohol level low, and fruit flavors bright and fresh. This is a lighter take on Zinfandel without compromising on flavors, and the limestone soils really elevate the wine’s profile.
