Zinfandel, 2008 Carreras Ranch, Old Vine, Dry Creek Valley
Rich and deeply concentrated Zin with perfect balance of fruit and tannins.
Planted in 1905, the vineyard has been dry farmed and head trained for 110 years. Truly a heritage vineyard planted with a classic 'Field Blend' of Zinfandel, Petite Sirah, Carignane, and Alicante Bouchet grapes.
A very classy Zinfandel, big and bold...this is no shrinking violet. Long lived, very balanced fruit and spice. Aged 32 months in American and French barrels.
