Winery Notes: "The Zinfandel comes from a historic vineyard site in Contra Costa County, owned and managed by the past four generations of the Del Barba family. The own-rooted old vines growing in the granitic sands of Oakley produced a prolific crop of beautiful fruit. Cool and breezy mornings through August allowed for a gradual development of flavors. Our parcel was harvested at dawn on September 4th. Fifteen percent of the fruit was left as whole cluster, while the balance was de-stemmed, all went in to a concrete fermenter. Fermentation occurred with ambient yeasts and the must was pressed 17 days after harvest. Primary and malolactic fermentation finished in neutral French oak barrels, no additions were made except for sulfur dioxide, and the wine was bottled without any fining or filtration. The wine is aromatic, juicy, and fresh, with a soft texture and ripe berry and stone fruit flavors, and a finely grained finish. The perfect wine for the Fall season."
