The Story: In August of 2012, Dave Phinney and his friends stood in the middle of a block of hundred year old Zinfandel. The vineyard was planted by George Beldon Crane in the late nineteenth century and is one of the icons of the Napa Valley. Hours earlier they had signed the paperwork to buy the vineyard and it was just in the nick of time…they picked the grapes the next morning.

 

The Wine: Dark crimson in color, the strong, classic Zinfandel aromas of briar fruit and wild strawberries jump out of the glass and are complemented by hints of wet forest floor and high mountain forest. The entry gives way to a rich and textured mid palate of Mexican chocolate, brambly raspberry and a lengthy, caramelized crème Anglaise finish. This wine is a unique expression of old vine Zinfandel grown in the gravel-rich alluvial soils at the base of the Mayacamas mountain range.

 

Winemaker Notes: "Complex and evolving from first taste, unique aromas of hot granite, brambly fruit, mixed berry cobbler, forest floor and smoke open from the glass. More aromas abound—black plums, boysenberry compote—that carry through to the palate that is lush, rich, big and brawny. The finish is lingering and persistent, and the wine is definitely addictive."
