    Winemaker's Notes:

    Medium garnet. Scented red fruits, tart plum, white pepper, dried herbs, crushed stone. Elegant entry; sweet red currant, strawberry, lightly toasted oak. Medium body, finely woven tannins, refreshing acidity. Approachable.

    Bob Ponzo has farmed these grapes for us in the Russian River Valley since 1999. Bob's vineyard, on deep gravely loam soils four and a half miles south of Lytton Springs, provides all of the fruit for this zinfandel. The Russian River Valley's cooler microclimate ripens this fruit shortly after Lytton Springs and Geyserville. Small amounts of petite sirah are interplanted with zinfandel in the oldest block.

    Critical Acclaim:

    While the Russian River Valley is a cool-climate area, the vineyard sourcing for this wine is in a warmer, eastern part of the appellation. It’s ultrarich in berry, licorice and bacon flavors that are sweet in the middle palate, but finish with a dry scour of tannins. Lovely now and over the next six years.
