Wine Maker Notes
Through the success of The Prisoner, winemakerDave Phinney has gained access to some of the best Zinfandel vineyards in the Northern California growing community. Dave decided he wanted to makea high quality Zinfandel and what he created did notfit the constraints of a single AVA.There are grapes from Sonoma, Napa, Amador, Mendocino, and Contra Costa counties. Some of these great vineyards include Aparicio, Duarte, Pato, Eagle Point, Mattern, Taylor, Haywood and Tofanelli just to name a few.The word ”saldo” has many different meanings in Spanish, Italian and Portuguese. In Spanish, it mainly refers to ”balance on hand”, and sometimes it can mean ”from here and there.” This wine represents the best of the best lots made by Dave from vineyards all across Northern California.
