Vintage Notes

The 2017 growing season began with a good deal of precipitation, but after a mild spring, temperatures heated up and remained quite warm throughout summer
and fall. The vintage delivered smaller than average clusters, which led to excellent concentration and high quality.

Viticulture

Dry Creek Valley
There are two techniques for growing Zinfandel in Dry Creek Valley. One consists of traditional farming practices and includes the dry farming of mature vines that
are head-trained, spur-pruned, and severely thinned in the spring to produce low yields. The other method utilizes bilateral cordon spur pruning, on-wire trellising, drop irrigation, and carefully manicured canopies. We source our Zinfandel from vineyards that are farmed both ways. The combination produces wine that’s multi-dimensional and extracted.
