The Wine
This Old Vine Zinfandel shows wonderful dusty raspberry, blackberry, white pepper and spice, with coffee and chocolate characters. Aging in new and used wood has lent this wine a subtle vanilla quality that nicely complements the explosive fruit notes. Enjoy this wine presently for its effusive black fruit, or cellar for 5 to 7 years.

The Winemaking
A pre-fermentation cold soak with traditional pump-over cap management preserved the unique fruit qualities of this wine. After malolactic occurred in neutral wood, an addition of 30% new American oak was used to enhance the spice flavor components and to frame the fruit with added structure in the mid-palate. During 11 months of aging, this wine was racked once and only lightly filtered before bottling.

The Vineyard
Three different blocks of ancient vines, 85-90 years old, from the sandy soil (Delhi sandy loam) surrounding the little Bay Area town of Oakley in Contra Costa County provide the fruit for this blend of Zinfandel (87%), Petite Sirah (8%), Mataro (4%), and Alicante Bouschet (1%). These “old vines” produce a mere 1.5 to 2.5 tons of fruit per acre, showcasing the classic “Oakley” flavors of dusty raspberries, white pepper, and chocolate nuances.
