This Old Vine Zinfandel is from the finest selection of premium, 25+ year-old vines in the Shenandoah Valley. Its rich, dark purple color reflects the concentration of flavor that occurs with old, gnarly vines that yield less grapes, but with a much higher concentration of flavors and tannins.
The nose expresses blackberries and black cherries with lighter spice, clove, and black pepper. The wine was aged for 22 months in French oak barrels, giving notes of vanilla and soft tannins. A small amount of Petite Sirah was added to round out the tannins and to elongate the finish with a hint of chocolate.
