Located on the rugged hillside of the Rockpile AVA, the Davenport Vineyard overlooks the remote Lake Sonoma. This high elevation vineyard sees plenty of sunshine, sits above the fog line and is planted in rocky soils that stress the vines resulting in small grape yields that ripen early in the growing season. Flavors of blackberry jam, fig and baking spice are layered with notes of dried rose petals and baked plum.
This 2020 Fanucchi-Wood Road Vineyard Zinfandel embraces you with concentrated aromas of black cherry and raspberry with undertones of earth. The ripe fruit flavors of plum and blackberry overlap with chocolate and vanilla while the well-integrated tannins, producing a smooth texture on the palate. The finish is long and luscious with bright acidity.
In honor of the many old Zinfandel vineyards that were overlooked for decades in Sonoma County due to prohibition, our Forgotten Vines blend is comprised of several exemplary mature vineyards. These heritage vineyards were first planted in the late 1800s and early 1900s in the warmer reaches of the region. Planted as field blends, Zinfandel is the primary varietal planted, but not the only varietal. Petite Sirah, Carignane, Alicante Bouchet and even some native vines can also be found in some of the vineyards. The vineyards are harvested separately and remain separate throughout fermentation and aging until the final Forgotten Vines blend is crafted.
This 2019 Wild Creek Vineyard Zinfandel opens with intense aromas of boysenberry and raspberry and is enriched by layers of spice. Bright acidity and silky tannins round out this elegant restrained wine.
