Winemaker Tasting Notes: Planted on a beautiful rolling hillside near Occidental in 2002, Ulises Valdez took advantage of the different exposures and soil types to experiment with different clones of Pinot Noir. On the very top of the ridge there is an area of reddish soil, with southern exposure, that just cried out for Zinfandel. Ulises was prevailed upon to plant just a couple of acres of St. Peters' Church clone Zinfandel here. Two acres isn't a big risk, and in fact there are some old Zinfandel vineyards along Harrison Grade Road nearby. There's a mountain ridge to the southwest, protecting the vineyard from the brunt of the onshore wind and fog. By maintaining a low crop load with the usual warm coastal October weather, Zinfandel does very well here. Availability The 2006 Lancel Creek Zinfandel is available directly from the winery or can be found in select restaurants and fine wine merchants in the Bay Area.
