Selecting fruit for the California Zinfandel program is a daunting task; the
primary focus is harmony, with an emphasis on early drinkability and an
elegant structure. The 2007 edition of the California Zinfandel continues
to draw from an assortment of superb Zinfandel vineyards. A backbone of
fruit from the famous Zinfandel growing area of Lodi (contributes 56% of
the blend) has brought an explosive berry/cherry character to this wine.
Thirty miles nearby in Contra Costa County, we grow Zinfandel on low
yielding, head-pruned vines in the unique sandy soils of Oakley (22% of
blend). This area is known for creating wines with intense dusty wild berry
flavors and peppery tannins. The balance of the grapes is from selected
vineyards throughout Sonoma and other parts of California.
