Another stellar, old-vine, head-trained vineyard in Sonoma County, Hooker Creek is an incredibly unique site, with gravelly loam soils washed down from Monte Rosso. Here's the winery's description of the site: "This old-vine vineyard is planted along Hooker Creek, north of the town of Glen Ellen in Sonoma Valley. The section of the vineyard we receive fruit from was planted in 1888 on a part of the Agua Caliente Spanish Land grant purchased from General Vallejo by Joseph Hooker and William Sherman in 1854. Despite an ethically questionable life style, “Fighting Joe” Hooker went on to command the Army of the Potomac in 1863 as a major general. After losing the battle of Chancellorsville to a Confederate force under Robert E. Lee, half the size of his army, he was relieved of command. Planted in 1888. 5 acres of zinfandel inter-planted with minor amounts of petite sirah and alicante bouschet."
