Vineyards used for this blend are 50 years old and 93 years old cropped at a little over 1 ton per acre. The 2008 Old Vine Zinfandel is comprised of the best selection of these vineyard lots, each adding its own nuance and complexity to the final blend. This Zinfandel is dark red in color with aromas that are reminiscent of holiday spices, berry pie and cedar. The flavor has ripe fruit with a background of nutmeg and pepper with tannins that are moderate and ripe. Aging in French oak lends a note of vanilla and coffee bean to round out the mélange of flavors.
