Vineyard Notes
Produced 90% from the Harvey Vineyard, America’s oldest Zinfandel Vineyard documented as existing in 1869. “Vineyard 1869” was planted in the days when horses were used for cultivation. This ancient vineyard is non-irrigated, stand-alone head pruned vines that fully express the Amador Zinfandel terroir. In the mountainous high elevation vineyards of Amador County, 2021 was a drought year producing small amounts of flavorful extractive wines. Dark small bunches and berries with good color and dark fruit characteristics.
Winemaker Notes
Produced in the “Old World” style of balanced wine making. We want the wine to express the Amador Zinfandel terroir with a good balance of fruit, French oak, structural tannins and medium alcohol. The wine is made in the California Claret style reminiscent of the balanced Zinfandels produced back in the 60’s and 70’s.
Other Notes
90% is 154-year-old vines from the Harvey Vineyard known as “Vineyard 1869” located in the Shenandoah Valley of Amador County, 10% is Primitivo from the Uphill Vineyard above Fiddletown.
