Day 2016 'Grist Vineyard' Zinfandel, Dry Creek Valley, Sonoma County, California, USA

Winemaker: Ehren Jordan

Farming: Organic

Variety: Zinfandel

Terroir: 1000 ft. elevation on Bradford Mountain in the Dry Creek Valley AVA. The site was originally planted 100 years ago, and has since been replanted in the early 1970s. Farming here is CCOF Organic. The 58 acres under vine are head trained and cane pruned, and have spectacular views of the fog line by the Pacific Ocean. Iron-rich, red volcanic soil lead to low yields and concentrated wines. Peak temperatures in the summer time tend to be in the low to mid 80s, allowing for gentle and complete ripening without raisining.

VinificationNative fermented and aged 11 months in 15% new, 85% neutral French oak barrique; bottled unfined & unfiltered.

Tasting Notes: Supple and balanced, this full bodied Zinfandel has classic aromas of baked red strawberries, ripe black currants, wet tobacco and hints of wet gravel. The finish is long and warming, but is sparked by bright, brambly fruit tones accented by herbaceous notes of licorice and green peppercorn.
